Default Pyramids 3-1

I went out this morning to fish the pyramids by 3 barges. All public numbers by the way. Well I actually found them and I was catching black sea bass and flounder . Both of which I've never caught before because I haven't done much bottom fishing. I was just using a chicken rig with squid and shrimp. The wind picked up out of the east and it was hell getting back. All in all I got dinner and some new fish out of the trip.

Nice catch. Good to see you finally got out there. I've never been offshore in pensacola before, just destin. Did you use a fish finder to find the pyramids or just a gps?

Both. I was moving all over the place with north wind in the morning and east this afternoon. If I could have stayed in one place I could have wore them out. I was marking a decent amount of fish but id catch one and by the time i had it unhooked I was gone from the spot. Oh well something to look forward to the summer

Or a buoy to mark the spot?

I didn't take my anchor. I was kinda just out there looking around to see if I could even find them. I knew wind was going to be a factor today. I do like the buoy idea though.

I told you that you would catch flounder and black sea bass there didnt I? That is why I LOVE my Hobie for bottom fishing. Point bow into wind/current and slowly pedal and I will stay right on the spot!

Nice! Can't wait to get on some bottom spots this year. Thanks for the full report makes me consider what I'm gonna need to do to work bottom out of a paddle yak this year. I like the idea of a bouy to eliminate having to search for the spot over and over. Still on the fence about anchoring offshore though

Those pyramids are small. If I was to drop a buoy I would drop it near it not on it as a point of reference.
