Default A little of everything on Betty B---8/29-30/11

I'll try to keep this short. Left Sportsman's around 2:30PM on Monday. Found a big PVC pipe floating upright about 40 miles offshore with a few nice tripletail under it. We hook a couple and land 1. Hit a couple of our rocks a few miles south of there and catch a few red grouper, white snapper and a bunch of AJ's to 45lbs or so. Run on out to Petronius and find it pretty dead besides some blackfin. Catch a few for chunking later and after an hour or so of live baiting at various depths we head to marlin and have similar results there. Hit Ram later in the evening and immediately start marking big fish at 350-400ft. We drops jigs and live baits deep but only end up with large blackfin. Knowing there are big yellowfin down there, we stick it out for the remainder of the evening and continue live baiting and chunking for at least a couple more hours. We get some rest and at about 5:00AM I start to head back to rig. As the sun starts to give a slight glow we make out some fish feeding on top and put out a spread. Get a double hookup as soon as we get 2 baits out and pull the hooks on one. Alan takes the rod and 30 minutes later, we deck a solid 125-130lb YFT. We just put out 2 baits and after I swing the Betty B back over the action we get hooked up again to yet another solid YFT. Landon makes shorter work of this one and the 120lb fish is on deck. We ended up getting one more, smaller YFT, a 10lb dolphin, several blackfin and big bonito before heading back to the North to more deep rocks. Catch a few more red grouper, big beeliners and white snapper before calling it a trip.
