Default Destin Offshore 2/17

Boy was it cold this morning at 630. Good thing the launch was nice and flat. I got my arm twisted to go try some of our spots down in Destin. SOMEONE was tired of Navarre and Okaloosa . First stop was Miss Louise. FFs were blowing up. Fish up and down and all around it. But.....none of them wanted breakfast . We stuck around for a couple of hours and then started hitting the reef complexes. Usually we see a good amount of fishing marking in the pyramids, but there were hardly any. And all the ones we saw were holding tight to the structure. Blackjeep meets up with us and he pulls up a Gag along with a trophy Snapper. Other than a couple other Snappers, the bite was really slow. Then, to make matters worse flipper and his sister decided to start their bait stealing act with us. Every cigar we dropped was getting pilfered. Well, I got fed up and busted out the almighty flounder slayer. Redemption came in the form of a flattie limit. And they tasted damn good!

I would hit any structure close to a pass, Destin or Pensacola. They are still out there. I bounce a 2oz bucktail jig on the bottom tipped with cut bait, cigar, squid, or bobo strips. I like this better than a Carolina rig, because you can feel them as soon as they grab it.

Glad I got the extra sleep. It was cold out there but surprisingly didn't seem too bad out on the water unless the wind was blowing. My feet were numb though after going barefoot all day. I showed up just in time to pick up a few bonita, a nice snapper and I had words with the gag below. I love catching grouper, maybe someday I'll get one while they're in season.... or better yet, maybe someday we won 't have a closed season.

Flounder were turned on in the afternoon. I was being selective about keeping them after the slaughter we've put on them the last few weekends, but I still came home with 5. I caught several skates today. I think 6. They suck because you think you have a nice flounder on the line as they're coming up.
