Great, now I need more jigs!
I could probably do a 36 hour tuna trip. Bottom fishing on the way out, tuna fish at night and then bottom fish again on the way home. I’m not a huge fan of bottom fishing on the way home mainly because we are all exhausted after a night of fishing But we have done a few of those and they are good trips. We will definitely be running more 36 hour bottom trips in the future.I really liked offloading at 7 am on the bottom trip. A night of tuna followed by bottom fishing all day / till we had to head in to make the dock at 7.. sounds like an ideal trip to me =)
The 56 is a bit long and 30 a bit short in my mind.
I will sign up for both if they will put them on the books.The boat fishes M-T and T-F so 56 hours mess up their schedule. I will try to set one up in May and December next year but we will have to fill it or we will lose it. I don’t want to drive the extra hour to go to Port A.
Did y’all catch a black drum haha? Second to last pic10/14-15
Seas were pretty bumpy heading out and the bottom fishing was a little on the slower side. We ended up getting on a good Beeliner bite but the Porpoises were relentless. They were robbing us of most of the fish we hooked. We lost quite a bit of time on the ride out running reduced speed because of the seas so we didn’t have all that much time for it.
We went right back to the floater we found them at the last trip and were hooked up to yellows immediately. Our hook up to land ratio wasn’t great at first but got better as the night went on. Barracudas and Porpoises were also giving us a really hard time.We had to really work for our fish this trip but we ended up with some quality fish in the boat.
On the ride home we made a quick pit stop to catch our limit of Red Snapper before heading to the dock.
