2/10/18 West Palm - Jupiter report
Went out of west palm yesterday, nobody had live bait (again) so since it was just me and my girlfriend who's only ever fished offshore once, I decided some easy trolling was the best option. With the good north current and ESE wind, we slowly powered out to 70 ft and I dropped 4 lines in, all homemade daisy chains. I knew what I was targeting and I found them. In 85-100ft we ended up catching 16 bonita between west palm and Jupiter. Perfect to show her the ropes and to have some action. We even successfully and without tangles caught a double. Twice I had a fish take the line out of my hand while trying to get the bait out. I did have a deep diving lure in the water and had, what I think, was a big king hit, but it broke off (my fault), so only bonita for us. Since it was a little sporty, we ran to Stuart and had lunch at Pirates Cove before taking the ICW back to West Palm. I have never done this and didn't know there was that much no wake. Oh well, great day spent on the water. No big meatfish, but I got what I was after so thats a win in my book.
