Being stranded in a boat on the Gulf of Mexico for 12 hours will be a fishing trip Charles Scott won’t soon forget.

Scott and his brother-in-law Jerry Newsome, both in their late 60s, went out the morning of Sept. 29 to go grouper fishing, Scott said Tuesday.

The Dunnellon-area residents launched Newsome’s boat from a ramp near Yankeetown in Levy County, pushing their 17-foot Starcraft vessel 27 miles out into the Gulf.
