Default Rig Trip Sat-Sun

Water at Appomattox was blue and 70 degrees. Calm seas. Awesome day with friends. We managed to bring home 10 blackfin, a 30 lb yellowfin tuna and a 130 pound yellowfin tuna! Caught them all jigging. I am wore out!

Nice job! We are wanting to make the run from Destin if we get a weather window in Feb.

Can you give any info on the run?

Sweet! Were you exclusively jogging or is that just what worked?

We exclusively jigged this time. I had wanted to chunk and live bait but we never caught any blackfin small enough and did not run into any hardtail to live bait as we have in the past- just not this time. I donít know why we did not chunk- I guess we got lazy. The blackfin were mostly between 50 and a hundred feet. For the first several hours we did not see any marks below 200 feet. I was beginning to think my bottom machine was goobered up but then we saw ones coming through at 300. We did have what we all think were other good yellowfin but various line issues lead to a run of line going out and failure unfortunately- lost two jigs myself and one at least was on a yellowfin (I think it was at least). The big one we caught was at 300 feet.

The trip out was great- left around 1 from pensacola pass. We wanted to get there before dark. Ran 28 knots for a couple hours then had to back down to 22-25 knots. Once we burned 55 gallons we dropped down to 10 knots and dumped the 55 gallon drum fuel barrel into the tank, then hopped back up to 22-25 knots the rest of the way. There had to be 15 other boats out there at various times. It was busy!

Hope that helps- ask whatever other questions you think of. Iím just learning too but we are getting better.
