Default PBGFC Ladies "Blue Marlana"

We had a great time on the water this past weekend, and want to thank the PBGFC Ladies auxilliary for another awesome tournament.

We left Pensacola pass friday night, and ran to the spur to do some swording. The seas were absolutely dead flat,so no need forthe sea anchor.

Marlana made quick work of two swords that night. One pup, and one just legal. (47") Since the tournament minimum was 60", we let them both swim away to get a bit larger. I think that makes four for her this year. Seems our swordie fishery has really blossomed. Let's hope it stays that way.

Saturday morning came, and we found a nice weedline just east of the spur, next to the southwest corner of the dumping grounds. We had one large fish miss the hooks (may have been a billfish, but not sure....sure acted like one, but I never got a good look at it)

We continued to work that area for most of the day, with scattered fish here and there, but nothing to write home about. That night we headed deeper into the canyon, and live baited some nice lines. Missed a 40# class dolphin, but nothing else to speak of.

Sunday we started heading north, but the water got really green just above the spur. (I don't recommend fishing there!) Again, several knockdowns and fish, but nothing to win a tournament.

No billfish for us. I think there were only three or four tagged all weekend. They must be somewhere getting ready for the storm??

The seas remained dead calm all weekend, and we even had some nice rainstorms to keep us cool. I love fishing the perimeter of these things when it's hot out.

Anyways, here are some pics from this weekend. The guys must have been bored, as they sure were camera happy! As usual, I enjoyed being out there with our good friends. Thanks guys for making a slow trip fun!

We are headed back out tomorrow. Maybe the storm will stir things up a bit.

Tight lines,

Dave



Little pup



Barely legal

Hardcore wife pouting in the rain. " where's my fish??!! "



Not sure why Wes took this one....should I be concerned??? (or should Josh be concerned is more like it!) By the way Hiller...I see weeds on that flat line! DAMNIT MAN!

Pretty sure i saw you guys out there sat morning. Heard you on the radio talking near by around 9-10 am . We came up on several larger sport boats and could have sworn i saw you guys . We stopped on a pallet in those patches you guys were trolling and scored several nice dolphin and triple tail before that storm pushed us and the weeds out. With no way to get out of the rain in our 27 cat we had to leave the area all together.

BTW: Your boat is drop dead gorgeous, my dream boat for sure.

Thanks againDave and crew! BTW, speaking of Hillar showering, does he always shower next to men in foul weather gear??????

Now that you mention it, i did see one lone huge tuna sky up , over 100 pounds for sure. The wind and rain was killing us so we couldnt do anything about it. My buddy thought it was a mako , but i clearly saw it was a big tuna. Bummer that the storm had to ruin my day , guess i need a bigger boat :banghead

Mike,

I'm not going to say I told you so, but...I did offer to leave my boat in the water while I am in Iraq so you could use it.

Dave,

Good on you for letting the legal, but not tournament sized swordie go. The fishery is getting better, and careful harvesting will help it grow.

Harry
