Default Thursday Report

I tried to get out at dark but on the way I got side swiped by a car. After all the crash report crap i got to my hunting grounds at 7. Got my limit in 2 hours and was out of the water by 9:15. Fish were deep and plentiful...about 6-8' and with a 10' gig it was a challenge....had to lay on my belly to reach them. They ranged from 13" to 19".

Very Nice...all by yourself? I am not trying to get your spots, but were you at the mouth of the river or down along the island?

Thanks and good job

I was around Coast Guard station near Destin pass. There are some submerged rock piles in about 6' of water that hold em well most of the year. I'm usually always solo...yet to find a gigging buddy.

Truck was not too bad...scrapes on the front fender and door but no dents. The Honda Accord the hit me did'nt fair well...my front (steel) bumper ripped his rear (plastic) bumper nearly off and caved in his rear fender. Gotta love American Steel.

What type of lighting system do you have to see 6' deep, that's deep gigging.

I run 2 150w HPS lights with a Honda generator. The way my lights are mounted..I can point them straight down and see well past 6' in clear waters.
