Captain's Corner: Grouper at 40 feet

Bottom fishing: We have been grouper fishing at depths of 40 feet this past week with success. Mixed in with smaller fish are some hefty gag groupers. The keeper gags have been averaging 8 pounds at this depth.

Special catch: Numerous other reef fish have been available. Sea bass have been mixed in with the grouper. These fish don't grow more than a couple of pounds but are quite delicious.

Extra bonus: Key West grunts have been plentiful, too. These small reef fish are always ready to eat a piece of squid. The grunts are so aggressive they will swarm the baits in large numbers, allowing a No. 2 hook rig to be employed.

    PITTSBURGH — RHP Alex Cobb couldn't have been much better for the Rays on Tuesday, taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning while working eight solid. And Alex Colome couldn't have been much worse, blowing a two-run ninth-inning lead.

    Rays starter Alex Cobb carries a no-hitter into the seventh and pitches eight shutout innings in his best outing of the season.
