Default 7/15-7/16 - Late Report - Overnight Trip on Tideline 235

Sorry for the late report...makes it kinda useless, but nonetheless..

Did my first overnighter on my Tideline 235.



Good trip overall. Started off about 55 miles SSW. Pulled in a few nice Red Grouper (14lb and 18lbs) along with a couple of nice mingo, ws, and two sow reds that went 20lbs and 24lbs.






Could have loaded the boat down with fish out there, but wanted to do some deep dropping and get on out to the rigs. Tried a bunch of spots over at the steps, but the bite wasn't happening for some reason. Off we went to Marlin. Very fishy! Lots of blackfin that we used for chunking with the exception of a 30lb blackfin that we kept. Kept seeing nice yellowfin busting and down deep, but couldn't get any bites. Was early in the night so we ran down to Horn (In hindsight we should have stayed at Marlin) and found no life.



After a few hours, we made the run to Proteus. First drop, we got a solid 60lb yellowfin




Nothing after that...which wasn't shocking, given the reports I received. stayed for the morning bite, which didn't occur, then ran back up north. On the way up, about 12 miles east of Marlin, the open water tuna were jumping! Of course, we were ill prepared! Had two, over 100lb fish next to the boat destroying fish on the grass, but we couldn't get a hook in em. Lost a nice fish on a popper, then the skipjack tuna moved in. Pulled in one of those then it all died down.

North and east of Petronius found a nice bluewater grass mat. Got a nice 12lb bull off of it!


Overall, a nice first overnight trip. 300 miles round trip with 147 gallons of fuel burned.

My boat holds 160 gallons, so we made it back with about 9% of our original fuel. We brought an extra 20 gallons for emergency. Next trip, I will have a 50 gallon Marine fuel bladder, depending on where I want to run. That will give me up to 500 mile range.
