Default Destin 03/28

Hit the same spots clemsontiger and I did a two days ago. The Gulf wasnt as flat and I was kind of nervous as it was my first time out alone.

Long story short it was dead out there and I hit several spots managed just one red snapper and a few short triggers and of course more ruby red lips than you can shke a stick at. The triggers where my target but often times I would drop down, drift and pull up empty hooks. Didnt even feel the bite so I figure they were hitting on the way down.

No cobia seen nor hits while trolling a cigcicle.

I called it an early day because when the fish aint biting it gets pretty lonely bobbin around out there all by yourself haha. Im going to need a new fishing buddy now that clemsontiger is moving.

I did see some fliers less than a half mile from the beach as well as something BIG that was moving faster than any fish Ive ever seen. It was no dolphin either as I watched it crashing at the surface for around a hundred yards. I kept telling my self it was just a big manta ray as I have been seeing them jump lately but Ive never see one move like that before.

I'll be in the Destin area this summer some time with the yak itching to get out.

A day out on the water is a better than a day in the office.

It was probably just a hooter. You wouldn't have wanted to hook into that anyway, I here they are no fun to catch.

No this thing was big, at least a couple hundred pounds and grey. I told my self it was a big manta ray with a firecracker up its ass but in the back of my head I was thinking mako. It was moving left and right as if it was chasing something and I did catch a glimpse of a fin, just one fin. Ray, yes a ray. And let me tell you after seeing that, every wave that crashed after that startled me a bit.

I always get a little nervous when I'm out by myself to. We also saw a couple fliers right off the beach in Pensacola today while cobia fishing

If you go on the weekend and need a partner to head out shoot me PM, just need a few days notice. I haven't been off shore in the yak yet but want to try. I'm in a Tarpon 160 so I have to paddle looking to go to the darkside though.
