Try Hubbards Marine at Johns Pass, St. Pete. 727-393-1947 They have 1/2, and full day party excursions. They also have a trip to fish the middle grounds, It is overnight and you sleep in bunks on trip out, fish all next day and come back that night. I have always wanted to try this but havnt gotten around to it yet. They usually catch thousands of pounds of large fish. Only thing I have heard is that the regulars will claim the stern to fish off and this is the spot to be. Also catch some of your own live bait to take with you and you will increase your catch. Grouper will devour those grunts. Another boat I like is in Tarpon Springs at sponge docks the Miss Milwaukee 727-937-5678. Or bring your own rod and reel and fish the Skyway bridge,south end where you can catch some great variety of fish. Good Luck, David
