Matt McLeod joined me as my co captain for our overnight trip Thursday-Friday. We began the morning getting down to the boat and finding about 200 dead hard tails and cigar minnows in the live well. Special thanks to Paul the bait man for getting us out of a jam! Armed with fresh bait, we headed offshore and the fish were waiting on us, it seemed every spot we stopped the fish bit! We stayed mostly in 250-300' and poked away at tons of nice scamp, 7 gags, some red grouper, almacos, aj, and one speckled hind. We ventured out a little further and caught 2 nice yellowedge but the deep drop bite was real slow. Finally, it was time to go tuna fishing we found them to be waiting on is with open mouths as well! We totaled 7 yellowfin from 45-70 lbs. all fish were caught late in the afternoon and at daylight, nothing at night. Finally, we pointed her back north and picked up a few more fish on the way home. Lord knows we all struggle sometimes and it was nice to have a trip where everything worked out as planned. Here are a few pics

Holy Cow thats a haul right there. As always you put the smack down on them. I bet your customers were happy with that trip. Happy to catch them and happy the house of pain was over. They will be sore for a few days. But, its a good kind of sore. Congrates Capt. and Crew on that one.

Thanks guys, it was a real fun trip. It was real nice to have Captain Matt McLeod working the deck like a pro. He worked his tail off and it was a true team effort. The only part that stunk was when the weather came in early (about 2 in the morning) and our sea anchor broke. That meant no sleep and a crappy 90 mile run into 4 ft seas. Other than that, it was a trip to remember.
