Default Big Eyes, Yellowfins, and Blackfins

After about 3 year of trying to get my friend Zach on an overnight offshore trip, we finally made it happen Tuesday the 13th. Tuesday the 13th is not my lucky number, can I just say that.

Lets start from the beginning. Met at 6 am at the tackle store and they were out of my tuna hooks. No worries I have enough if the sharks are not bad. If we run out, we can use my bottom fishing hooks. Drive to the boat and starboard engine is dead. Hour later it is up and going. Get to the Destin pass and catch 4 baits in about 30 minutes in rough seas. This trip in turning into a night mare. So, I talk them into running the ditch to Pensacola for bait. On the way there my buddy Jake tells me bait fishing was horrible that morning. Great just Great. We get to Pesacola pass and find bait after looking around a bit. Headed out in sloppy seas. 10 miles out we lose the auto pilot and gps. Head to Daybreak Marina were we have the electronics looked at and get them up and going. Going across the bay we lose the auto pilot again. So, we decide to just drive it and hope for the best. Leave the pass at 3 pm. 9 hours after starting this trip. Get to the rigs at dark. It was a ROUGH ROUGH ROUGH ride. Said our prayers on the way out and God smiled down on us. Fishing was very good. Caught about 25 blackfin, 2 big eyes, and countless yellowfin. After the box was full, we caught and released 10 to 15 yellowfin for fun. Ran home at daylight with a great crew, cold drinks, high fives, and smiles. Thanks again Zach, Dane, and crew for a great trip. Also, a HUGE thanks goes out to my buddy Jake for all the help to make this trip happen. Everyone be safe out there and God Bless you all as he blesses me.

"Leave the pass at 3pm. 9 hours after starting this trip."

"Countless yellowfin"
"Caught and released 10 to 15 yellowfin for fun"

There are no shortcuts.
In the end it's about paying your dues.

And I agree, in my humble opinion you were truly Blessed with God's grace.

That's true, your not going to catch more than the good lord let's the sea give you.

That's a very good catch.

Capt, I got to thinking. Why did you run to Pensacola for bait?

Im not, in any way trying to question your judgment....trust me. Just wondering.

Ive spent a lot of time fishing off the beaches around Navarre in my kayak. And now in boats, at times I wont even bother catching baits in the pass, just run straight to Navarre and load up on cigs, herring, etc right off the beach. Have you ever given that a shot? In the mornings the bait tends to stack up on the bottom from just outside the sand bar to about the color change. Its generally pretty darn reliable. I just use my bottom machine to locate them and once found I just stay in that depth and do quite well. Of course if you were trying to throw a net thats a whole different story!
