Default 16 Oct Great Day Trolling

<SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'"><P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'">Got out of work early and dropped the boat in the water at Sherman around one. Tried the pass with no luck. Switched to trolling from Ft. Pickens to the east in 30 ft of water using a pinch stretch 25 and a white shallower rapala. The bottom machine started showing structure and then both rods doubled over.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o><P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'">White rapala caught a 34 bull, sorry about the pic but it was on a camera phone and I wanted to get him in the water.<P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'"><o></o><P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'">The other rod had a small gag grouper less than legal.<o></o><P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'">Turned the boat around to the same area and could not find the structure even though I marked it. The "structure" was a school moving further to east. The stretch caught a larger bull red who was lost at the boat along with the lure when he made a last ditch dive.<o></o><P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'">Kept on the school and caught two undersized gags at 16 and 21. Finally a keeper, a 24 inch red.<P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'"><o></o><P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'">Stayed on it long enough to lose one more lure and then lost it and headed back to the west. One more hook up was a smaller king lost at the boat.<o></o><P style="BACKGROUND: white"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #1f5080; FONT-FAMILY: 'Verdana','sans-serif'">All in all a whole lot better than my day at work. <o></o><P style="BACKGROUND: white"><P style="BACKGROUND: white">

Nice report and day out fishing. Your offspring does not seem to be too impressed with your catch though.
