First-place true black grouper winning meal, too

There's a familiar face gracing the cover of September’s Saltwater Sportsman.
It's Bradenton's Shaya Flathman holding a 35-pound true black grouper she caught for first place in June’s fifth annual Fire Charity Fishing Tournament to raise money for burn victims.
Shaya teamed up with brother Trever, boyfriend BJ Grant, pal Jon Cannon and boat owner John Smith to win the tournament’s offshore division and $2,500 prize money.
Thing is, they spent $5,000 on fuel for the weekend tournament trip from Sarasota Bay to the Dry Tortugas in Smith’s 39-foot Contender powered by triple Yamahas.
They sold a lot of the fish they caught to help cover fuel costs.
But the big ol' grouper they kept and ate.
“They are absolutely amazing tasting and the filets are pristine white,” Shaya said.

If you’re looking for a place to go after a high school football game, Pat and Lynne Goneau and their son Kyle are back in business at the newly relocated Beef O Brady’s, 4935 Cortez Road, after a nine-month hiatus.
They’d been at their old Manatee Avenue West location for 10 years.
