Default 3 barges 28 Jan 2012 tried oxbeast PA out

Launched I'm guessing at 740 with Blackjeep and a friend of his at second parking lot fort pickens. It was his first time out and he did great. The surf was coming in with sets, so it seemed you had to time it right. Was my first time with Oxbeast PA after the trade. I thought I had clear sailing for my launch and then out of now where I had waves breaking on the bow and soaking me. Ha ha, oh well. We immediately gave up on getting bait past the shorebreak and headed to 3 barges. I think within 5 minutes I dropped a sardine and landed a 26" Redfish. within 10 minutes boaters, kayakers and dive boats showed up. We decided to try some other spots because of the walmart parking lot out there. Next seven hours we caught of bunch of pig fish, few nice red snapper, few small triggers and a few sand perch. The dolphins seemed very aggressive today and wouldn't stop following us. They were actually stealing our sardines and minnows and screaming drag off. I think Blackjeep has some video of them getting really close. Not the best day but we still had fun. Oxbeast I love the PA, thanks again.

Dolphins are attracted to fishfinder signals, so if they won't go away, try turning off your FF for a few minutes. These dolphins are probably just sitting on the Three Barges anyways, but if they follow you as you're moving to a different spot, it's probably your fishfinder's fault.

I will try that next time for sure, We didn't spend much time at 3 Barges and then when we left of course they showed up immediately at every other spot we went to. I'm sure we weren't the only ones getting harassed. I guess were in there territory so can't complain too much.

You should have seen the dolphins haul ass to us from 200 yards away when I hooked a pigfish. I think they actually heard it grunting. They came right to me and gave me an underwater fly by looking up at me for it. I have 3 or 4 videos where I put the camera underwater and they came to within about 5 feet of it each time and sat there trying to figure out what it was. Pretty cool, but they were a serious pain in the butt today too.

I saw that dolphin stealing some guys fish for about thirty minutes. He was on a boat and getting frustrated. After you guys left I hooked up with a HUGE shark, he cut me off but he did come to the top once then shook his head and he was gone 7 ft at least I think, Don't want to exaggerate too much but he was big. Nice day lots of small porgies and one snapper.
