First offshore trip of the season for me, and man it was a good one. Me and 5 friends meet up with Capt. Jamie Grimmer down in Ft. Walton for a bachelor party / fishing trip on Thursday night. We fueled up, iced up, and baited up Friday morning and headed to the timber holes to get some bigger live baits. After catch a few we decided to troll towards the Petronius. After 5 knockdowns we had 4 hoos on the boat with the biggest at 71 lbs. After the last one was on the boat we put up the lines and ran on to the rig. Sharks and lots of em at Petronius so we head to the Marlin. At the marlin the BF bite was on so we caught them while we could wound up with ~30. No YF though. We putted around until right before daylight and wound up at the deep rigs (MPs) had 2 more hoo knockdowns and landed one of em. Dropped some live baits and got our limit on AJ. Did a few deep drops and picked up some Long tailed seabass, mingos, and creole snapper. With everybody about worn out we decide to head towards the spur to try for a sword for the icing on the cake. After a couple of sharks and an oil fish we had a hit around 2am and knew it was on. after fighting it for a couple hours we had a sword on the boat (60lbs) we headed in and made it to the dock at 8:30 Sunday am and started cleaning fish.

Sorry for the long report but it was a pretty epic trip! Big thanks to Capt. Jamie Grimmer and Capt. Nick Hunter for taking us out and putting us on some monster fish! Looking forward to fishing with them more this summer.
