Default Overnighter May 8

Its good to be back on the water. My lack of fishing reports were not due to lazy typing but lack of fishing trips. Work has been really busy to say the least. I fished with Isaac Smith and Matt Coker my new fishing crew. We started wednesday night near the steps swordfishing with little luck. The water was amazingly blue but all we got was 2 sharks. At midnight I moved us east and we leased a short swordfish. When I say short I mean tiny. At morning we tried some bottom fishing and it sucked. Deep dropping and shallow water both produced 2 grouper, 3 white snapper and 3 blueline tile. Hardest 4 hrs of bottom fishing. Plan C: Hope Wahoos save the day and it did. We pick up 3 and blue / white color was all they wanted. We tried different positions and that color was it.

Now to the best part. I just had both lower units replaces and around 11 , we lose a prop. It just slipped out. Very angry that the repair shop forgot the pin but also disappointed in myself for assuming no would make that mistake. I will double check next time. Now when this happened, we had just caught 2 within 10 mins. I can't imagine if we fished for another 5 hrs in that area. So, fishing was cut in half and we limped back at 15 knots. Very long day!

Water is amazing from the steps to the elbow. Scattered weed pretty much everywhere inside 400 feet. No real lines forming yet but bait and birds were in good numbers. Enjoy it out, the water is beautiful close by.

Jeff,

It was great to get back out there with you and Matt. Swords got lucky this time but their days are numbered. The wahoo's definitely made the trip. Water was electric looking and lots of life out there right now. Ready to go again.

Jeff and Isaac,

A pleasure to be back on the water with you guys for sure! Wahoo definitely made the day but a nice trip overall even with the prop debacle. Can't wait until we are able to do it again!
