Default Horn Mt plus snapper on way out

Had the opportunity to take a long standing customer and friend fishing this past Thursday/Friday. Caught a quick limit of snapper on the way to blue water. Made a few loops around Petronius, green water with nothing happening, trolled over to Marlin, blue water, but no surface activity so we pushed on to Horn Mt. Horn was is pretty blue water and we were marking yellowfin, but never saw the first one on the surface?! Trolled and chunked and caught one nice YF and three dolphin. Should have caught more YF but we were enjoying letting everyone work the reels and chunks which while fun to include everyone it has a way in reducing catches. But I like letting new people get hands on even if it means we miss a fish or two.

At around 6pm it seemed every high end sportfisermen in the gulf showed up at Horn!! I assume they all left Biloxi at the noon start of the Biloxi event. It was a parking lot at dusk!

Next morning we woke to see the radar and Sirius weather looking horrible at best!! Trolled north until we got slammed by 38knt winds (as recorded at Ram Powell) and 5' seas with what seemed like a 1' period!! Put everyone in the salon and I stayed on the bridge and brought us in. Horrible weather!

All in all two great days on the gulf!

My nephew and one of the snaps


My friend from Arkansas lost this snap to a shark


26 miles out and you still get neighbors!

YF from Horn


And we had to go thru all of that to get home!! (notice Iridium satellite phone)

Video is right when storm front crossed us near Ram Powell, I felt like I was driving from inside a washing machine!

Nothing better than a fun trip.....and getting home to tell about it! nasty crap out there. I don't think I've ever been happier to not fish a tournament.

Robert sounds like another good memory. Sorry about the bad weather on the second leg there. It is kinda cool though to see what the good lord is capable of. Its just not cool to be in it when he desides to let it blow. Glad yall had another good trip.

Chris V, rough would be an understatement! The bad part of it for me was we trolled from Horn to Ram, had very nice tuna marks, was about to clear deck and chunck and live bait for them and then had 35 knot winds hit us! Also on the way out we came across some fairly nice lines and was able to get the crack hardtails we have been looking for, didnt take long to get plenty of live bait. Sabiki for ten minutes or so and we had plenty. On another note, I dont know what kind they are but the sharks are just nuts, we caught sharks at every rig we fished at, by 10 o'clock at Horn it was every drop! I know they are important to the food chain but they will run you nuts!

Big difference from the seas in the first pic, glad y'all got back safe.

Where can I find an ice shovel like yours?
