Loaded the well full of pogies just north of the inlet, then headed to the buoy...got to the 20 mile buoy and counted 17 other boats there so that was a bust...trolled around there for a few hours and only picked up 1 small dolphin. Came in to 8a and saw some kings busting, slow trolled for an hour and went 2 for 4 on the kings.
Fished in the tourament with all the million other boats out there. Cleared the inlet at 7, ran to a wreck to get bait, bait was tough, but got 4 dozen sardines by 9 oclock. Went to 8a, fished there until 12 and caught ten kings up to 33lbs, let 5 go because they were small and mept the other 5. Decided to see if we could catch some dolphin, ran to 130 where there was a weedline. Trolled it for 5 minutes until a school of peanuts swam up to the boat caught 20 in a half hour but only kept 6...didnt win the money, but in all was a good day.
Will upload pics later
Glad to hear you had decent luck on Saturday. You did better than many! We left the docks at 5:00 A.M. and headed out east of the weather buoy. Saw lots of scattered/broken weed, lots of flying fish, and a few well formed lines with nothing on them. Ended up catching a few schoolies and a shark at the end of the day on a nice weed line in 160 ft. Saw a huge hammerhead and a big free-jumping sail right in front of our boat, but couldn't get either to eat. Tough day of fishing, but it was still a great day on the water!
