Default Navarre Tuesday 5/15

Me and my buddy Phil took the Outbacks to Navarre after reading all the great reports lately ... got IN the water around 7:30 a.m. , looked for and found live baits = Cigs and Threadfins ... peddled out past the rubble out at the end of the pier , and put some live baits out , a few short strikes by what appeared to be Spaniards so we peddled a bit further out where we saw some bait balls crashing the surface ... 1st bait out for Phil , I see a splash behind his bait , BAM Sailfish finds out it's hooked and starts tailwalking ... AWESOME to see my buddy hooked up ... after a few minutes of this the Fish sounded , but the last time it came up = POP , Fish gone ... we tried several different baits and techniques , but NO more Sails ... we did manage a few BIG Spaniards , and a few Nice Kings ... on his LAST live bait Phil hooks up again , fish peels line off pretty good , we're thinking BIG King ... after a half hour or so we see it , HUGE Blackfin !! ... I've seen alot of these Offshore and this was one of the biggest I've ever seen , it was just over 27 lbs. ... when we first launched and were using Sabikis to catch live bait , Phil got a small Catfish that stuck him pretty good , guess that's why he had THE Mojo today , he caught ALL the Pelagics , I only caught Mackerals ... Water was clear Blue-ish , Sargassum grass , Flying Fish , Bait balls and Pelagics ON the Beach ... Yep , we live IN Paradise

Saw yall out there. I was in the tan Outback. It must have been the blackfin I saw one of you hooked up with. I did a circle around yall to see what was bulldogging you straight down but left before the fish was landed.

I only ended up with kings and spanish trolling fresh dead cigs on dusters, looks like drifting livies is the way to go.

Nice job!!
How long of a leader are you running under the ballon? Guessing fluoro and a bit of wire? I'm heading to the Alabama coast in a few weeks and can't wait to get out there.

Great job! Got my BFT out there earlier this year. Still waiting for another. That home made sushi is awesome.
