Default 3/9 - Deep Dropping - Exploring New Spots

Left shoreline around 7am..headed about 70 miles SW looking to bounce around and find some new deep dropping spots. Water cooled down a bit nearshore.. 64° until about 10 miles offshore, which is down from almost 69° last week.

Water 20 miles out is blue-green but little to no grass was seen all the way out to where we pulled the throttles back...70 miles out.

Lots of fish biting and we found several great new spots. Although we could have limited out on grouper at a couple of spots we tried just taking a fish it two from good spots so that they will be productive for future trips... Didn't get as many as hoped, but still a fun day! Not pictured is the 50# wahoo that pulled right up to the boat after we released a porgy back after a drop... Very cool and he was lit up.. couldn't get him to eat, but still an amazing experience!

Hope this next Friday weather window holds up...til next time, tight lines!

That's smart not overfishing the spots so you have a good place for next time. Had a wahoo do the same thing about 3 weeks ago. He was free swimming like a cobia and couldn't get him to eat. Thanks for the report!

Tell us about your boat. I think I passed you awhile back towing it by Tiger Point Winn Dixie.
