My boys were off from school,the weather looked great, and I had some vacation days. Posted up in the "Wanna Ride, Needa ride Section" and the first victim (winner) was Inn Deep.

After some pre communication, in which I "TRIED" to inform him of what he was getting into, we agreed to meet here at this time, and...etc.

Finally get in the water and fly out the Pass at 35 mph for a short run to where I"ve been lucky with Mingo and Trigger. We pulled up the juvenile, of every fish species there is. At 1 reel in, we had 2 juvvie AJ's, and a ARS on a 3 hook rig, on a spinning reel. :doh

Made the move to the Edge and we get some NICE stuff on the bottom machine. I thought there was wreckage here!!! :clap This was just approaching the Edge.



After a couple of drifts, we figure out where to drop anchor, and work some beautiful natural bottom with a a drift from the north to South. Perfect!!!

Inn Deep breaks out his "Reel of Pain" (ROP, as the boy's and I now call it) and other assorted rods, and start landing fish.

Live bait on the ROP and BAAM!!!



37in AJ that our handheld said weighed 23lb to 25lb. Zachary reeled it in, and he is now the AJ master of the boat.

We foul hook a BoBo and then start using that as bait. The ROP goes off again, and this time the 2nd mate jumps on it. After a 20 min Battle (8yo clock) we bring this to the top.



Bonita on the bottom, and I look at Inn Deep and :shedevil.

So the next time the ROP goes off, Inn Deep and my 2 boys say it's my turn with this look on there face, :shedevil :shedevil :shedevil

So I man up and start reeling, and after a possible stroke, this comes up.!!!



We actully cleared that tangle too!!! :clap

My boys wanted to make sure that Fat Jax noted our newfound Sharkfishing skills!!!! :doh

Wind moved around and became from the S, which didn't help our anchoring on the Edge situation, so we moved to the YG.

Lo and behold, who is there??????



I'm not saying anything about the Starboard list of the Purple Grouper machine, but there was a peg leg guy walkingon there that I was very happy to see.



Great to see the Recess crew, and Wade, especially out there. That'll heal ya quick brother!!! :letsdrink

After a little photo op of Recess running,



We get home, and put out the fish.



Not a great box by many peoples standards, but great for us!!!! Thanks Inn Deep for all the knowledge you passed on to us, and the ROP soreness we ALL now have!!!! :banghead

Thanks also to the Recess guy's, who always try to help me out on and off the water!!! :bowdown

Scot You could not have pick a better crew. The boys look like they were having the time of their life. It was also nice to meet Arthur (inndeep) when we pulled up to yall. Thanks for not getting us wet when you flew by us. I was holding 30 knots and next thing I knew you were gone. What a day to be on the water catching a few fish and just enjoying life. Gene

I also believe it to be a Almaco. That tall swooping fin is a dead give away. It's a stud. Great report. Kids smiling always makes me smile.

Nice report Scott, looks like it was slick as glass. Now I'm really upset that I had to work. That is a stud of an Almaco.

I am embarrassed to say I never even thought to look to see if it was an almaco or not. It was so big I just assumed it were a regular AJ. But I believe you guys are correct now that I look at top fin. It measured 34" (fork) and was bottoming out the 25lb inexpensive scale as the boat wobbled a little.
