Default 3 Mile 3/16 Bulls on Topwater

I am on vacation this week decided to head out to 3 mile last night. I put in Gulfbreeze side around 11:30pm water was calm but moving. First 45 minutes 3 bulls right off the bat near the base of the bridge. Largest was 36.5 inches. I saw several other yakers out there spoke to one said they had caught a few and they were heading in. I moved on down the bridge towards the middle got hooked up 3 more times 2 broke off on the same rod. The first time I thought line must have become weak second time on the same rod I need to change the braid I guess so I stopped using that rod. 3rd bent my hook on my plug. I did have a first which I am sure is not uncommon but never happened to me. I had a sailcat hit a topwater plug. It not only happened once but twice. The wind stated picking up and so did the water so I headed back in to the ramp around 2:30am. I saw 2 yakkers at the ramp spoke briefly said they had caught 4. By the way if one of them reads this I found your plano box left at the ramp I threw it in my truck so PM me and I can get it back to you. All in all good night

I had a sailcat eat a whole live menhaden. They do get aggresive when schooled up.

I had one hit a big spinnerbait being jigged aggressively out there saturday. They put up a good fight but the slime is no fun.

Caught three Bulls and saw a 7ft shark. That'll give you the willies in a little plastic boat at night.

Since we don't have sailcats (had to look them up) in my neck of the woods this may sound stupid, but do people eat them? If so do they taste like freshwater cats?

I've heard of people eating them, never have myself.

Don't know if I would do the snot they leave on the line and everything.

Ones I was catching were big though. 24-26 inches

Nice haul!

Debating on going tonight if the wind will lay down. Only thing holding me back is that I don't have a 360* light nor anything to manufacture one lol.

Big red. I bought this

I have mine on a piece of pvc with a hole drilled and a bolt to retain it . But you could just stick it on the stern. Cheap and works
