    3/17-18 St Pete Offshore

    Launched the boat out of Fort Desoto around 5:30 PM and cruised over to the Skyway to put a few live baits in the livewell, bait wasn't hard to find at all. Cruised out to the pipeline at sunset, tried a few different spots and picked up a few Mangos hear and there. On our way to the next spot watching the bottom machine found a sweet spot! It was loaded with Mangos! Made short work of filling our limit and caught my personal largest. Just before the sun was coming up we cruised out to 125' water to try and find decent AJ's. Couldn't find them anchored so we started trolling. We were getting Bonita one after another which is fun to catch for me but then the rod bent over good and line was screaming off. We hooked into a decent Blackfin Tuna! This was my first tuna I have ever caught. We trolled out to 135'-140' and landed a very nice Gulf Dolphin. All in all i think this trip will be hard to top for a while.Click image for larger version.

    How dare you!! First post and your rubbing it in our face how great your trip was.

    Your supposed to say you went out, burnt $250 in fuel and didn't catch anything. With that said impressive catch
    The Beatings will continue until moral improves!
