Our crew was able to squeeze a trip in a small weather window yesterday. The trip was highlighted not by the fish we did catch but the one that got away. We started out at a spot where we have had several but whippings before and sure enough, my dad hooked the man and the fish won again. We have caught 3 gags on this spot over 50 lbs in the past but this one just keeps eluding us! Tony Davis, one of our regulars, renamed this fish from "James" to "Bad Bad Leroy Brown." He ate a giant croaker on 200 lb leader and is still down there laughing. Oh well, that's what keeps us going back. The rest of the day we managed to pick away at some real nice scamp, 4 gags, red grouper, jacks and almacos. We also caught another 25 lb wahoo while on the way out, what a nice bonus!. The deep drop bite was real slow as we spent a lot of time out there only to manage 4 yellowedges, 1 barrelfish and 1 golden tile. The overall bite was real good early and late but real slow in the middle of the day, typical of a new moon phase. All in all, a great time was had by all and I can't wait to go back. Sorry for lack of pics, the only one I took was this morning of a few fish before cleaning.
