Default Monster trigger Thursday 4-19-2012

Launched at about 7:30 am to some nice surf, biggest I have taken my PA thru yet. Timed the sets just right and didn't even get wet
Trolled the entire 4.7 mile trip out to the spot but not a hit.
Got to the spot in about 73' of water and it was beautiful out there.
First drop with a live bait and pulled up a little 33" red snapper.
While I was catching more bait got a legal trigger
Then a little later dropped my bait rod with my shimano 4000 reel and hooked what I initially thought was a nice snapper. Fought this fish for what seemed like 10 minutes. As soon as I get color I realize this is no snapper but a stud trigger!
About 22 inches at the fork! Weight it at Gulf Breeze Bait and Tackle on the way home 9 lbs!
My buddy Ollie got about a 5' tiger shark on his chicken rig which was pretty
cool to see.
I didn't even try for kings because I can't even give that stuff away and the smoker I ordered is on backorder
found another spot on the way in which was in a hole in 85' of water and it was loaded with fish! The snapper literally followed me when I was leaving. I got some cool video of that.
Got a few bobos on the troll in. The surf had not died as much as I had hoped and I barely avoided rolling my Pro Angler in the surf! Ollie was nice enough to video my beach landing
I'm sure he will post it on here soon lol.
It was a great day on the water and I am so lucky to live here!
Thanks for reading!
Dustin
