Got some Great weather and took my boat for the long 2 hour ride south out in the Gulf. We had a great day on the water. Caught our limit of Scamp Grouper and a variety of other fish Mingos, White Snapper, Amico Jack's, Mahi mahi, and a surprise Tilefish in less than 300' of water on a live bait. We ended the weekend with a small fish fry having caught so many groceries. Found the log offshore and it looks like someone may have hit. We had alot of fun and got our baits / fish sharked a few times so keep moving to another spot. I forgot to try for Triggers while we were out there. Anyone who read about the trolling motor post I put up a few weeks ago it was the 4th person out there I pulled up to a spot found good bottom and hit the lock button and dropped baits catch a fish and hit the jog button a few times to work the spot. It was nice to take people out and have me be able to fish in stead of drive all day.

Forgot to mention got stopped by FWC around fort pickens. They were cool and pretty much just checked the fish boxes.

I wondered how long that would take to see if anyone noticed the painter's tape lol. I ment business I wanted to get to the spot and fish as soon as possible, it rips right off and ready for the bait. My boat on the way out ran 33 mph I had to make up some time some how.

Awesome trip! Can't wait to get back out there. Painters tape trick is a good one. I usually leave the weights in the box until we fish but this gets you fishing quicker for sure. I have tied so many chicken rigs on conference calls this week, should be good for the season.
