Went down with chunk ballyhoo and immediately commenced catching the major lanes I’ve at any time seen (13 – 14″). Took a charter out of Sanibel 40 miles out two years back and failed to catch lanes this significant. The action was continual up until eventually we received about 12 in the boat. Then a significant mackerel commenced smashing the ballyhoo about our slick. So, making use of discussion board expertise, threw a sizing 10 hook with a small chunk of squid out to the hoo and put ten in the livewell. Threw a single out on a absolutely free line – line peels out like outrageous i jerk, almost nothing. Hoo slice in half. Throw a further a single out, shark, damn. Throw a third a single out ideal ahead of the hoo get smashed, reel in quick to put the bait in the fray, see the mack spin about, chop my hoo in half, appear again and consume the half with the hook, then shoot off, I give it a single conquer, then near bail set hook, fast slice by way of my 45lb chief… EEFFFFFF! Why failed to people on this board notify me to get some light wire if we preferred to catch ceros (oh wait, they did).
After including a unwanted fat Porgy to the cooler we picked up anchor and went to a mark in 57ft of h2o ideal ahead of the lighthouse. Approach was to drown some stay hoo in hopes of a grouper ahead of the chum slick attracted sharks. Initially a single went down and didnt previous a minute. Fought a lug for about 5 mins… damn shark. Future a single down, shark. Future a single down shark. All right lets freeline a chunk for yellowtail… nope, shark. Then a compact blacktip commenced circling out chum cage. Waves starting up to establish, surrounded by sharks, let us shift on eh?
Zoomed again into the Sugarloaf edge where by we did well on Thursday. Stay ballyhoo heading down all over again, bam, this time a Enormous lug, scarcely shifting. 6ft Nurse shark, crap. Yet another a single down, Nurse shark all over again. All right, adequate with the stay hoo… where by are the grouper??? Concluded off the box with a couple wonderful yellowtails, two significant mangos, and some smaller sized lanes. Over-all a further great day.
With gusts to 25mph now, hoping we can tuck inside the lee of Critical Lois and obtain some hardbottom… we shall see. Any other views or tips on where by we should consider would be significantly appreciated!
