I went out with richard, richard, mike and jeff from the atlanta big game fishing club on sat on a 29 Evergladesand man was it rough 5-7 ft a few bigger . We left IslandCove about amand did 11 knots all thewayout to the nipple.Had a shark hittheshotgun about 9 dont know what kind it was have not ever seen shark like that but it wasn't a mako. Hooked up a sail about 12:30 got him to the boat in about 20 minutes and a good release. And caught one wahoo about 25 pounds and one black fin that was the size of a football.back to dock by 6:30.All in all a great day richard caught his first billfish and mike caught his first wahoo.

It's impressive you got out there and fished at all....looked nasty. Add to that a sailfish and a hoo, and I would say you 'da man! Seriously, nice job guys. I know how hard it is to fish on those kind of seas.

Good job guys. Glad someone made it out.

We went out of DI about 15 miles and turned around. We were going to try and do some bottom fishing. A little to rough though!

Good to speak w/you at the docks! Congrrats on the sail fish. :clap:clap:clap

We had a tough day also. We launched out of Orange Bch, so ran the ICW to Pensacola, and then headed off. We hit the Chevron on the way to the nipple, and decided to troll around it for some kings, but only found a bonito & about a 1/2 dozen cuda were home. I found a nice broken weedline just a little South, we missed two white's, a nice dolphin,had a couple runs that seemed like hoo's. We had a hard tme keeping lines tight with anglers pitching to & fro.

Late in the afternoon, we realized our scupper on the starboard side wasn't draining properly,and discovered we were holding water. That's a scary tought in any kind of sea's. So out came the pump & bucket brigade. Between the waves over the bow and a bait tank hose pumping water into the boat, we had taken enough h20 to slightly list. I soon discovered the manual bigle was non-functional and the auto-bilge pump was on, but not moving h20.We kept on top of things w/the manual pump, and headed for 5:00 weigh in.

We didn't get back to OB in time to find some replacement pumps, so we didn't fish the 2nd day. Admittedly, I don't think the team was too enthusiastic about getting beat to death again. There were lots of bruises and sore backs from the pounding.

So did you guys win it? I haven't heard the who placed where.

Thanks for the reply. If anyone has any pictures (especially the sail) from the tournament, pls send them to me. I am putting an article together for the Georgia Outdoor Adventures magazine. You can e-mail me as follows, pls note I am using the word "at" instead of "@" so I don't get spammed to death: sales(at)burgesspigment(dot)com
