Just in case anybody was wondering these fish came from Alabama so no laws were broken being that there were only two of us fishing. Oh yeah, that count was correct :35 Flatties, 1 Shitdonkey, 1 Mullet. All but five were gigged from 2:00 AM-daylight.

I've been admiring the catch there man! That's a mess of fish you got there! That'll sure feed some relatives! I'm surprised you aren't asleep right now after cleaning all those fish! Good job!

I thought the night was going to end up being a flop. The wind was in the 15-20 mph range out of the west and it was white capping. I managed to scrape up 6 in the 12-14" range between dark and midnght and decided that some thing had to change so we loaded up and relocated to some more promising ground that could be fished with a west wind and within an hour of starting and about a 1 1/2 miles of trolling we started running into them.

Are you sure you didn't start talking them into jumping in the boat?

WTG Five Prongs That's a nice mess of fish. But when you make a 300 mile trip you better get a mess.
