Porgy & Remora fish, Gulf of Mexico, FL.

Posted on July 19th, 2015

On our recent trip on the Gulf of Mexico with Helgie Eymundson and Jeff from Wild TV where we are airing our Canadian Sportfishing & Lumberjacks TV series. while we were targeting red grouper in seventy to eighty feet of water about 20 miles off-shore we also caught a few “non-target” species.


Helgie landed his first porgy which is excellent sport and eating. These fish are usually schooling along with grouper and snapper in deeper water.


I ended up hooking a remora which normally attaches itself to the belly of rays and larger fish like sharks. This one was obviously free-swimming in the water column and spotted my bait!
