Caught these a couple of weeks ago. I just got around to signing up for the new forum or I would have posted this report earlier. We left from shoreline about 6am and went outside the pass to find some of the reds on top water that I have been reading about on here. The birds were going mad right outside the pass on the pickens side but there was not any red activity. After casting a little bit my motor started to sound funny so we headed back inside. We trolled some pink stretch's for reds along the navy base with no luck. Then we moved a little further into the bay and I put somechartruese stretch 25's on. That is when the fun began. We had a double hook up right away, but only got one in. After landingthat grouper we put the lines out again and had another double, again just landing one. We realized after that pass that one of the eyes on my friends rod was messed up and it was cutting the line. We switched to another poll for our next pass and we got a single on the new pole. Biggest of the day was 28" and wegot some good filets off of them. I'm out now and need to go back for some more.

tunapopper --

I set them out to troll in about 10ft of water over a sand bar. They bounced off the bottom for afew secondsuntil we got totheedge of the bar that dropped off and led to somestructure in about 25ft of water. Every time they took the dip off the sand bar we were hooked up.

As soon as I figure out how to get my stretch 25's to dive, I'm there.

Nice catch. :bowdown

Hope the engine gremlin was something simple.

Thanks for the report and pictures. I'm still trying to hook up some grouper on Mann's 25's. Maybe Chartruse color is the answer. That and a good location. :clap:clap:clap

Great Gags. The small ones are all over the bay lately. Can't seem to get the keeper ones. Trolling seems to be the answer. Thanks for posting and nice pics.
