    Hubbards 39hr Trip report 10/8/13

    Took a few photos on this trip.

    I saw a couple of other guys catching bait at the Skyway that were also going on the trip. Look, two puffers and a pinfish at the same time!



    Daredevil pin fishing at the end of the Northside!



    Someone hooked a nice sized tarpon while I was there.



    Trolling on the way out.



    Kingfish #1 on the troll (on the way out).



    Kingfish #2 on the troll (on the way out).



    Tammy is cooking!



    I didn't take any pictures while we were fishing but I did take some of the results.

    Milos, waiting on his fish. He worked hard to get his near limit of mangos.

    How did you do Dave? Did you get your limit of Red Snappers?

    I got one Red Snapper and one large AJ. I got some mangos, beeliners, and such. Some people did well and some people didn't. The weather held out pretty good. At 1am on the way out it got bumpy for a little while but then softened back down so we could get some rest. Miss seeing you out there. Hope all is well with you these days.

    Maybe I'll try once again for my limit of Red Snappers next year. You know I typically catch them out of season!

    18 mangos, one was 7.5 pounds. I caught two ARS, only 1 was a keeper. Several other small assorted reef fish. No jacks or grouper for me this trip. I spent a lot of time just trying to protect my fishing spot from being over-run by googins. Hard to imagine paying that much money to go fishing when you are so totally clueless, but I guess you have to spend it somewhere.

    Yea, was definitely a slow trip. I think the biggest AJ caught was maybe a tad under 30lbs. I only caught around 10 mango's, 2 AJ's no grouper and NO Red Snapper, what I went out there for. Was kind of a let down as it was probably the worst trip I've been on with hubbard's number's wise. Definitely agree with navy with all the googin's ruining these trips on this boat. Seems every trip I go on there are more and more people on the boat who haven't a clue how to fish and just tangle everyone up. Oh well, that's headboat fishing I guess. I did get a few big mango's in the 6-7+lb class.
