Default Trolling Spur 6/26

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt">After studying the satellite images and determining that our best chance of any blue water was to head south of the spur we left out Friday morning with modest hopes. (We was me and friend Herbert) Arrived at spur and started trolling south. Water was dingy gray. Never found any color change but did find a pretty good rip that was forming up N/South about 15 miles south of spur. Easy to see with lots of foam and some trash. Had high hopes, but nada. Herbert and I made the comment thru the day that with offshore fishing it is as much the journey as the catching and we had great time on the water even though we only caught one Wahoo that hit a small Islander/ballyhoo out in the middle of nowhere. I continued to use my new autopilot that replaced my worn out AP and continued to be amazed at the AP. Ran over 200 miles in the day and basically never touched the wheel unless it was to follow a section of the rip! Fished til dark then ran in to be under bridge just after 9PM. Great day on the water.<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt">Still can't figure out how to correctly post pics!<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt">&lt;img src="http://www.forumpictureprocessor.com...s/P6250147.jpg"&gt;<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt">Herbie and the Hoo

Speaking of autopilots I have the Garmin Gladiator TR-1 and it is wonderful. Like you said you can run all day and never touch the wheel when you are offshore.

We arrived at the Spur a little later in the morning and trolled that same foamy line for about 4 hours. Caught one cow dolphin, about 25lbs. We did see a small school of blackfin busting about 15 miles South of the Spur. We picked up lines around 330PM and hauled butt back to perdido pass. Nothing but barren seas and ugly water from Elbow to Spur to Nipple. No sign of life whatsoever, no rips, no weeds, nada!
