Default Saturday 10-6 report

I had an 8hr trip on Saturday out of Destin. With the waves what they were I opted for a mostly trolling trip. Ran about 18 miles sw to the ledge and put out a spread. Water was rough with 2-3's and east wind blowing 10-15 but was pretty blue. We picked up a chicken dolphin within the first 30 minutes then hooked up but lost a little bigger one, saw it jump and throw the hook. Inexperienced angler on the rod kept letting the line slack. After trolling for a while with no hookups I decided to circle around to the area where we picked up the dolphins. That decision paid off as we picked up a couple more. Suddenly the left corner went off and I knew right away it wasn't a chicken dolphin. Line peeling off a 50 wide with a Yozuri Bonita lure on it usually signals wahoo and that was the case this time. The angler listened to me and made short work of getting the fish boat side. I sunk the gaff and swung him aboard. Weighed 23 pounds so a decent fish. We trolled a while longer and picked up another dolphin so decided to head back closer to shore. As we got inside the state water line the seas laid down some so I pulled up on a bottom spot and everyone got in on some fast and furious red snapper action. They hated that we had to throw them back but had a blast catching them. Managed a couple of small almaco jacks for some fish sammiches. We ran through some scattered grass at about 15 miles out but couldn't find an organized weed line or mat. I never did see a distinct color change but it gradually went from dirty looking to brighter blue. Here are a couple of pics of the 'hoo.
