    Tuesday ARS and mixed

    After casting off out of my place at 530am in palma sola we were met with beautifully calm seas out of bean point

    We stopped at the 3 mile north and quickly filled up on cigars and pins.

    From there it was a nice 43 mile run out. We got 31kph at 2.1 mpg on the freshly re worked 250

    We got to our spot in 147 feet and immediately were greeted with a christmas tree on the foruno.

    I dont know if it was the tide or what but it seemed to just completely die off. interesting point, a big grady with twins ran right up on top of us on full plane and instantly cut his motors started drifting right adjacent to us and of course the second we move he rolls right up and anchors on our ledge. Im not opposed to fishing near one another but it kinda sucked to have a spot we consider our honey hole have some dude come right up without so much as a wave. Back to fishing

    We decided to head in and hit a spot at 130 where we proceeded to pull up some mangs, vermillions and lanes.

    a nice king joined the fun

    We then moved to a barge in 80 feet and of course had the water walking with bonita, sharks and cudas. a captain in a contender came up and asked to share the wreck. he then unloaded 100s of white bait in to the water and it was game on with monster cudas, mangs, sharks, golaiths, bonitas and some baby ajs

    Nice healthy snappers and great looking wx to get it done.

    I know a few guys with Gradys......they seem to either be really laid back or completely ignorant a-holes. When I'm 40+ miles out I don't mind a little company especially when there is a 2 fish limit per person. Obviously they didn't come all that way and loiter if they didn't have the number........it's all about the attitude and they were jerks about it.

    Way to get it done Jeibe. People will pull up on you but it's like my brother said, it's all about the attitude.

    BTW, it wasn't me, I was on land.

    Take pic of or video of situation - post on forums and you will make a nice thread out of it. Someone will know the boat more than likely.
