Dania 1/7

I'm back!!!! Havnt posted in the forum in forever out of laziness lol went out this afternoon and the bite was fairly good. Got out deep n got 4 or 5 almacos n lost a sail... Then found a pod of toothy critters that cut off 4 of my jigs back to back :banghead, my luck all wahoo... We t in to a shallow wreck in 115' n as soon as I got there bamnnn my gog goes off. Screams out 300 yds of line on first run. After about 15 min get him in, jumbo king. Decide to call it a day and head in. On the way in a fat 31" cero Mac hits my last gog... Got back to the pier, take some pics n gave the king to an old man fishing with his 3 grand kids who havnt caught anything all day, u woulda thought they won the lottery lol, n kept the Mac for dinner... Nice afternoon on the water

    Hey bro, what time did you get out on the water? I've been curious about the afternoon bite since I have only ever fished Dania at dawn.

    IS the wreck you're speaking of the Tenneco Towers? Not trying to blow up your spot or #'s just curious. I've been wanting to hit the towers in the yak

    I actually have no idea the name or if its even registered. It's a wreck I found while drifting like a lot of the spots in Dania. Dania is loaded with either rock piles or small wrecks if u just keep an eye on your ff while drifting

    I'm still getting used to rading my unit, its pretty basic an old PMAX 15 that I had to fix myself.

    Any tips on reading the small grayscale screen? As stated before, I'm never want actual spots or numbers but maybe just some help on finding them myself :-)

    Thanks for the report, that is a SICK king!

    Good to know, I'll have to find the manual online. It's a discontinued model and it was given to me by a forum member (Thanks Clearchoice!) He bought a new one and could not get this OLD PMAX 15 to turn on. With a little TLC, some precise x-acto knife cuts she it working well now!
