    YC 28th

    Gonna make it quick...here is some midweek fish porn to get you through the day.

    Fished the YC this past weekend. As usual, was fun and I continue to learn a little more each time. There was a few forum members, some that ive fished with before and a couple that I met for the first time (nice meeting you guys). Was a pretty good crew and plenty of ***** talking which made it fun. Fishing wasnt on fire, but there was fish to be caught. There wasnt huge quantities of fish being caught, but the quality was fantastic...plenty of big muttons and a couple nice groupers. We fished from 150ft to 275 ft, most of the time staying around 200ft, which I absolutely loved. I had a horrible start losing fish due to user error and then a couple of pulled hooks, also lost a king at the side of the boat...lets just say I stopped fishing at one point to gather myself. When it was all said and done I ended with 10 muttons, 1 genuine and 1 firetruck red (which does not look that big in the picture after seeing the muttons). As you notice, there are no photo tricks and no holding the fish out with my arms fully stretched like a lot of pictures I see on this forum . Enjoy the pics

    Nice catch dude,those are definitely big boy mutts.i know what u mean about the photo tricks some its easier to judge a fishes weight when u hold him closer to your body and don't extend your arms.The mutton that you are holding by itself I'm guessing weighed 15 or 16 lbs......nice

    Nice fish and report glad to see a YC trip! Gotta love that slam on deck and sling into the totes lol

    Wonder why the YC pics never make it to the front page? :

    Anyways...nice muttons fishing in 200ft in the tortugas is definitely a thing of beauty.

    Had fun fishing with you Danny. Too bad the wind kicked up and the bite shut down Saturday night. I thought we were gonna spank em but on well. It was like two different trips. First night and during the day Saturday it was greasy calm with manageable current. Saturday night current picked up and wind started blowing 20 kicking the seas up pretty good. Steady pick though most the trip. Had two pretty good bites one at Saturday sunrise and one during mid day. I ended up with 14 mutts and a couple ARS and a decent gag caught sunrise Sunday. Flyers were everywhere Friday night and I'm glad I took the time to catch a couple dozen big ones. They worked decent that first night. Another weird thing was even though I had fresh flyers and gogs I caught all my mutts during the daytime on frozen speedos. Go figure.

    Go figure I caught most of my muttons on fresh ballyhoo...the rest probably on goggs. That one bite that Derrick "had to stop to check out" that he just happened to find was awesome, stud muttons coming over the rails non stop. Was crazy how that front pushed on top of us with the snap of a finger...just happy I got 2 more muttons in those conditions before I passed out. Nice fishing with you too, buddy. Hopefully see you out there sooner than later.

    Nice work Danny.

    One thing I've learned over the years, certain baits that work well at night, don't during the day. Flying fish is one of those baits. For something so absolutely deadly at night, I don't think I've ever caught a Mutton on flying fish during the day. My favorite daytime bait is a big fresh ballyhoo.
