Default Great day at the Squiggle 7-19

Headed out from treasure island marina this morning at about 8:00 (later than planned) and got bait from the bait barge in the lagoon. From there we headed straight south out of the pass headed for the squiggle. The bonita where EVERYWHERE! The ride out was smooth and took only about an hour and a half. We got there and there was bait, blackfin, and bonita EVERYWHERE! Started off trolling and immediately hooked up two bonita (cut bait) and then a yozuri bonita got slammed! after about a 15 minute fight we pulled in a huge blackfin!! After this we couldn't buy a bite for about an hour, so we decided to head southeast to a color change we had spotted on hiltons. With no signs of ANYTHING for about an hour, started seeing life (flyers, bonita, and some scattered weeds) it happened... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ and a monster blue started off to the horizon! With a rather quick fight (only 30 mins) he was at the boat! A first for all of us on the boat! When all the excitement settled down we started trolling back toward the squiggle. Almost directly on the squiggle was a palm tree. YES A PALM TREE roots intact... there where hundreds of schoolie dolphin on it and a nice triple tail! We caught about 10 schoolies and the triple tail and decided to call it a day! Nice day, Nice fish, and Great fun!

Great report and pics! Is it any wonder the blue and white Illander lure is so popular.

Great report capt, we fished a palm tree for an hour last month. It was so big, I called into the coast guard, it stuck out of the water 4 ft with 30 more down! Looked like a freakin channel marker 20 miles southeast of destin!
