TRYING. EARLIER TODAY WE WERE DOING CAPTAIN KEVIN COTE S NICE LITTLE DEEP DROP SPOTS AND
THAT WAS SOMETHING I VE NEVER DONE BEFORE. THOSE ARE SOME AWESOME LOOKING FISH FROM DOWN
DEEP. WELL DENNIS, WHAT KIND OF TERRAIN IS THIS SPOT? IT SEEMS LIKE EVERY SPOT WE RE
ON THERE S SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT, OR A LITTLE DEEPER OR A LITTLE SOMETHING GOING
ON. WHAT DO YOU HAVE HERE?THIS HERE IS JUST MOSTLY ROCKY BOTTOM WHERE WE CATCH
SOME GROUPER, SOMETIMES BIG GROUPER, BLACK GROUPER, RED GROUPER, ROCK HIND GROUPER, ALL
KINDS OF GROUPER AND YELLOWTAIL SNAPPER. SO WE LL SEE WHAT WE CAN GET CHUMMED UP.
WE RE STILL KIND OF GETTING SOCKED IN, WE VE GOT THE SUN FIXING TO POP OUT ON US HERE,
WE HOPE. WE MOVED TO ONE OF DENNIS FAVORITE SPOTS HERE AND HE S GOT A FISH GOING ON OVER
THERE I THINK? FISH ON?SOMETHING.SOMETHING ON.SOMETHING S STUCK
ON IT. IT S A LITTLE GROUPER STUCK ON SOMETHING.WHAT IS THAT A LITTLE SPECKLED HIND?
A BIG SPECKLED HIND. GOOD EATIN THOUGH.THAT IS A BEAUTIFUL GROUPER THERE.

A BEAUTIFUL FISH.FOR THAT KIND OF GROUPER, IT S A PRETTY BIG ONE.THERE
S JUST AMAZING FISH DOWN HERE.LOOK AT THE COLORS IN HIM, ALMOST LIKE AN ARTIST

FAMOUS ARTIST S PAINTINGS.THE SPOTS THAT ARE ON HIM ARE INCREDIBLE. CAN YOU COUNT
THEM ALL? (LAUGHTER) CAN T GET PAST FIVE CAN YA?THAT WOULD BE A FUNNY LOOKING
REDFISH WOULDN T IT? (LAUGHTER) THAT IS PRETTY COOL. SO WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH HIM
TONIGHT?EITHER EAT HIM OR LET HIM GO, YOU CHOICE. I SAY WE EAT HIM. (LAUGHTER)
WELL I SAY WE EAT HIM. WE VE GOT ABOUT FIFTEEN CREW MEMBERS WE BROUGHT OVER TO BIMINI
WITH US SO.FIFTEEN CREW MEMBERS, LET S SEE. HE S GOING TO HAVE TO FIND SOME FRIENDS.
I THINK WE RE GOING TO NEED A LITTLE MORE. I VE GOT TO GET RE-RIGGED, Y ALL STAY
TUNED I M GOING TO GET RE-RIGGED AND I M GOING TO CATCH ME ONE OF THEM THINGS. WELL WHAT
DENNIS HAS GOT US DOING HERE IS WE WENT OUT YESTERDAY AND WE GOT US SOME NICE BALLYHOO
AND THEY BROUGHT ALONG A LOT OF BONITA FOR US TO CUT UP AND BASICALLY YOU WANT TO CUT
THEM UP IN STRIPS TO MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE A BELLY OF A FISH AND JUST LET THEM DOWN AND
HOPEFULLY A GROUPER AND A SNAPPER AND EVERYTHING ELSE DOWN THERE IS PRETTY HUNGRY AND THEY
WILL EAT. SO DENNIS, IS THIS SIMILAR FISHING TO WHAT YOU DO IN MIAMI OR WHAT?WE
DO A LOT OF ANCHORING IN MIAMI, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS WE FISH MORE WRECKS THAN WE DO ROCKS AND
STUFF LIKE THAT LIKE WE DO IN THE BAHAMAS. IN MIAMI WE USE MORE LIVE BAIT BECAUSE THE
POPULATION IN THE AREA IS SO MUCH SMALLER, YOU DON T HAVE . . .FROM WHAT I VE
SEEN AROUND THESE ISLANDS THE LIVE BAIT IN MIAMI IS A LOT MORE THAN THE LIVE BAIT AROUND
HERE.(LAUGHTER) AH YEAH,AT LEAST TO GO OUT AND CATCH.WE DO USE
A LOT OF THE BIGGER CUBERAS WE VE CAUGHT HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WITH PIECES OF BONITO LIKE WE
RE USING NOW.OH, OH, OH, OH, COME ON. I CAN T TELL IF YOU RE A TRIGGER OR A
SNAPPER? HE S ON.YOU HOOKED UP?HOOKED UP BABY! I DON T THINK THIS ONE S A TRIGGER
FISH. WHAT DO WE GOT HERE? OH, OH, OH, OH, IT S A MUTTON FROM MUTTON NEEDS MUTTON! YOU
GOTTA HAVE MUTTON! FIFTY FIVE FEET OF WATER, A MUTTON SNAPPER AND LOOK AT THAT, SOMEBODY
ELSE LOST HIM TODAY, BECAUSE HE HAS A LINE STICKING OUT OF HIS MOUTH. (LAUGHTER) PRETTY

RIG IT RIGHT BY WRIGHT AND MCGILLON TODAY S RIG IT RIGHT SEGMENT I M GOING
TO SHOW YOU WHAT WE WERE USING OUT THERE IN BIMINI. NOW IT WAS A LITTLE BIT WINDY. WE
GOT SOCKED IN FOR FOUR DAYS AND WHAT CAN YOU DO OTHER THAN JUST DO THE BEST YOU CAN DO.
SO WE RIGGED UP THE DEEP-DROPPING RIGS. WE PUT CIRCLE HOOKS ON THEM, AND WE DROPPED THEM
DOWN. WE WERE USING LAZER SHARP HOOKS AND IN MY OPINION THESE ARE THE BEST HOOKS OUT
THERE ON THE MARKET. WE HAD THEM RIGGED UP WITH CUT BONITA WE CAUGHT EARLIER, SOME SQUID,
SARDINES, ALL SORTS OF STUFF WE WERE DROPPING DOWN AND THEY WERE DEFINITELY GETTING THE
JOB DONE OUT THERE. NOW THE LINE WE WERE USING, WE HAD TO BRING SOME LINE OUT THERE BECAUSE
THEY SAID WE WERE DROPPING REAL DEEP SO I GRABBED MY 1500 YARD SPOOL OF 60 POUND XS
BRAID, USING THE BLUE BECAUSE IT S SOMETHING YOU CAN REALLY SEE AS IT GOES DOWN DEEP. WHAT
CAN I SAY? IT WAS REALLY GETTING THE JOB DONE WITH THOSE CHICKEN RIGS. AND ONE THING YOU
MIGHT HAVE NOTICED OUT THERE TODAY IS WE DIDN T HAVE ANY LEADER AS WE WERE DEEP DROPPING
DOWN BECAUSE IT S 922 FEET DEEP AND THEY RE NOT GOING TO SEE ANYTHING BUT THAT LITTLE
LIGHT FLASHING AND THEY RE GOING TO SMELL OUT THAT BAIT AND THAT S HOW THEY RE GOING
TO EAT IT. BUT UP NEXT, I WAS THROWING A LITTLE BIT OF SEAGUAR FOR THOSE BIG-EYED FISH. I
WAS ALSO TOSSING THE OFFSHORE ROD RIGGED WITH A 6000 SIZED REEL, IT WAS RIGGED UP WITH 30
POUND TEST WINDTAMER FINS BECAUSE THE WIND JUST ABSOLUTELY KICKED UP OUT THERE ON US.
WE DID THE BEST WE COULD DO IN THE BAHAMAS WITH THE CONDITIONS THAT WE HAD. I WANT TO
SAY THANKS TO THE STAR BRITE CREW CAPTAIN PETE, GREGOR, ALL YOU GUYS DID A GREAT JOB.
HAD A BLAST DOWN THERE, AND REMEMBER ONE THING THOUGH . . . EVERY FISHING SEASON STARTS RIGHT
HERE AT DICK S.RIG IT RIGHT BY WRIGHT AND MCGILLONLY PIECE OF BIMINI
I WANT TO HOOK SWIMS THE OTHER WAY. (LAUGHTER) WELCOME BACK FOLKS, WE HAVE REPOSITIONED THE
BOAT YET ONCE AGAIN AND WE RE JUST JUMPING FROM SPOT TO SPOT. IT S KIND OF OVERCAST TODAY
SO YOU CAN T REALLY SEE THE BOTTOM TOO GOOD, CAN T SEE THE FISH TO SIGHT FISH THEM TOO
GOOD, BUT THEY ARE HERE AND WE RE JUST TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT SPOT TO GET THEM ON. WHAT
KIND OF STRUCTURE WE GOT DOWN HERE DENNIS?WHAT WE RE FISHING RIGHT NOW IS A
BARGE. YOU CAN SEE IT RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF WHAT THEY CALL THE DOUGHNUT RIGHT THERE.
WHERE THE GRASS DOESN T GROW AROUND THAT STRUCTURE, I BELIEVE FROM THE ELECTROLYSIS FROM THE METAL,
BUT RIGHT THERE IS WHERE YOU WANT TO CAST YOUR BAIT.THERE HE IS. THAT AIN T
NO BLUE RUNNER. HOPEFULLY IT S NOT A BACCARUDA. WELL, IT AIN T BROKE ME OFF YET. KIND GOT

100 comments on “Bimini Bahamas Fishing Deep Dropping For Snapper and Grouper

  1. C'mon, I was hoping to see some Big Fish, we've all caught fish this size then gone home and hung our heads thinking about how much gas we just burned through… I have faith in ya though!!

  2. the patch behind the hear works for some. bodine works for my camera guy, and there's even a wrist watch device that I hears works great but costs a $100.

  3. All Dick's Sporting Goods in Florida have the Flats Blue series. The GEN2FlatsBlue (Version 2) rods will be in stores next month.

  4. I don't like this brand of fishing. No real sport to it. It's essentially the electronic equipment and gear that's responsible for hauling in the fish more than the people. If you can afford the toys anybody can do it.

  5. I have never been fishing before but I still watch these videos on my free time! It's entertaining and educational. Awesome.

  6. i go there every memorial weekend but fishing in Florida and Bimini is just fished out my dad sold his 40 foot boat and I was pretty mad about it so yah.

  7. Hey blair big hey blair big fan, can you tell me a good rod that you could catch good size grouper on and catch good snappers on to and can take in shore fish

  8. Blair buddy you are my mentor one day I will save enough money to come fishing with you. You are so full of energy and knowledge I love watching your videos they are truly inspiring. Good luck and I'll see you someday!!!

  9. I really wished the 7'6" flats blue split grip rod had alittle larger reel seat cause it wouldn't fit a cabo 60 pts I bought or a penn spinfisher 6500 I tried at bass pro. I would of had to of filed the reel seat alittle thinner to fit but didn't want to mess up my reel. Besides that the rod was beautiful and felt great.

  10. To small grouper at 11:05 should of been released cnt deplete the grouper population by harvesting young fish that can thrive and reproduce

  11. Two of the best fish to eat Snapper & Grouper grill or pan fried.  With mango have them in Jamaica all the time great video respect Sir. 

  12. MY PRIME MINSTER NEED TO CHARGE YALL FOR FISHING IN OUR WATERS BECAUSE BAHAMIANS CANT COME TO AMERICA AND FISH FOR FREE

  13. Where about is the barge compared to Issac light? I was over there last weekend at Issac. I was deep droping 1300 ft for Queen Snapper. Looking for the Grouper. Got 1 12 lb Gag.

  14. Snapper is by far my favorite fish to catch! To bad I don't live near the ocean so I only get to like once a year. Great vid!

  15. in the bahamas we dont have any 90 feet of wate the highest is 700 in andros smh talk wat youll know
    r

  16. Seen season after season of you pulling up mogans, for you to just push a button to pull them up? I get its 900 feet but still.

  17. I'd like to see a catch an cook with some of these different species that most people don't have an opportunity to catch
