BTB - Santa Rosa Beach
Snapper and Grouper on every drop. The grouper were even biting bucktails. The live bottoms are flat covered with fish at the moment. The Kings weren't chewing, the bonita were everywhere.
We launched a half hour before sunrise. The only bait options were big Herring. We jammed the bait tubes and headed offshore to test the bottom bite. This was the first offshore trip in a Hobie for me, and the first for my compass. Holy crap - i've been missing out for the last decade fishing in my paddle yaks. I'm a convert for life now, for sure. Anyhow, the herring were cut into three chunks. There was a snapper on every drop for 6 drops, then a 24" gag picked up a chunk. I switched over to a bucktail and caught another gag. I only had a few livebaits left, and wanted to try the trolling bite for a sail/bft/king. The water was stained, and not very productive for trolling, but a good day nonetheless.

Great report. It encourages me to get out on the water and I appreciate the details about bait and presentation.
My FF is still in my old yak and I've gotta switch it over so I can get on the bottom structure.
