Default Deep Drop in FN Pair-A-Dice

Well, this weekend we trolled a bit, but it took second place to deep drop. Left Destin about 6 am Saturday with Allen, Tommy, and Jim. Headed to the Nipple and put out the spread. Trolled for a couple hours to the SW, but no love. Found a good spot to break out the deep drop gear in about 400 ft.

Tommy was the man of the day with a nice deep water Gag around 15 or 20 pounds. Jim hauled up an AJ, just short at 291/2 inches. Didn't realize you would hook them on the bottom in water that deep.

Nothing great, but a mix of smowies, etc.... We also got this thing we dubbed a Halloween Grouper! Is it a speckled Hind or Rock Hind?



Decide to get home early and headed for the hill, but made a pitstop between the Spur and the Nipple and put out the spread. Allen about lost a finger when the left long got pounded as he was putting it in the clip, but it was a cut off of the bait just behind the hooks. Baits back in the water and Tommy is hooked up on a nice Blackfin. The will eat well!

Packed it up and flew home on flat calm seas.

A bit of a different day for FN Pair_A-Dice, but a good one.

If this scorpion fish is any relation to a stonefish then you be sure not to get stung. It will ruin your day real quick.
