Default Petronius Sunday 1/25

Left Sunday at 1AM from the Old Lulu's boatramp at week's Bay.

After almost launching my truck because I jumped out while it was still in reverse, and almost hitting a pier at 40MPH, I reached the Petronius at around 5 AM.

Blackfin busting and I was in the only boat out there??????

After putting 3 decent blackfins in the boat the sun came up and the bite died.

Went to the Beercan, nothing, and boated a small yeller at The Ram.

Went back to the Petronius and put out a small spread.

The first run it was on, 70+ pound Wahoo.

After that 2 more strikes but no hook ups. All strikes on naked ballyhoo.

On the way in a decent mahi on a Stretch 30 and some jacks and grouper at Unocal.

Sunshine all day until the fog hit at 20 miles off shore.

Great Day!

AAAHHHH, I have ben to the rigs by myself before. Strange this when you ask someone to pitch in for gas. Thats when all the other things that need to get done pops up..

Congrats on the Hoo, how did you get the picture by your self? back at the doc?

The pic was made in the backyard after the trip, the hoo was caught at noon.



Fish were deep at the Ram, 200 ft +



Kinda hard to chunk when you're by yourself, lol
