Default Quick GOM trip produces

Last weekend I hit the gulf from 4:30 to 6:30. I trolled a frozen cigar minnow on a pink and white duster and 40lb wire. I had one a couple of large strikes and some stolen bait but never really connected. However, on my other rod I had a bargain bin Rat'l trap knockoff, white with a red head, I upgraded the hooks. I often pull this very close to my boat, to avoid tangles with the frozen cig but to have something else out there in case my cigar minnow gets stolen without me knowing it. Glad I did, b/c I caught five spanish, a bonito, and had something hit it like a king and run a good ways (I lost that fish due to incompetence). It really drove home to me the value of having a second lure in the water. During the last 45 minutes before sunset the action really picked up and I was getting consistent hits on the Ratl trap. I got to the beach just after the sun vanished, then made ceviche. I know some people dont like mackerel they make fine ceviche

Nice report, sounds like a good trip due to a 'backup' in the water.
Tight lines!
