    Offshore 7-20-12

    Went out this morning abut 25 miles sw of the Sanibel lighthouse.
    Trolled up 4 and caught 4 jigging. Seas were snarky hard 2-3 foot chop.
    Geoff caught this cuda on a bomber. just shy of 5 feet long
    Biggest red was just under 28 inches

    Not a bad day.

    Nuke, are those all reds or is that one on the end a gag? What did you do with the cuda? Your buddy is more of a man than me- I'd be scared to put my hands anywhere near that thing's mouth!

    Nope all reds unfortunately . We let the cud a go. I was a great fight. it jumped twice. I was using a 90# wire cable while trolling. Lucky he hit that one.

    i stayed North of those numbers. I might try them latter on.
    I was pulling Bomber CD-30's in the 80 - 65 foot ranges. I stayed a little south of the 240 ledge. right now there is a strong current coming from the north and heading south. This is kind of rare, I think the loop current must be close and influencing the near coastal currents . That might explain all the big barracuda we saw. Now there are tons of Bonita and glass minnows every where.
    The near shore reds will be close for the next 6 months now. Just got to find the gags!
