Posting because I love reading all of your posts and want to contribute, although it pains me. Left Gulf Breeze about 0545 and headed for elbow with flying fish everywhere. Started trolling at 0745 and proceeded to troll for 6 hours to the Steps without a single bite. No weedlines, birds, or boiling bait anywhere except for the flying fish and no other fish sighted. Water looked beautiful and was especially blue at the Steps, but just no luck. Beautiful day for about a 175 mile roundtrip, but I am so discouraged with trolling after trying hard this summer. I probably won't go again unless the Hilton's is perfect. Good luck to the rest of you.
