    Ponce Sat 8/18

    Found a crew to adventure out offshore Ponce on Saturday for some bottom bouncing. There has been a thermocline so the bottom has been a little cold and the bite has been a challenge. The crew consisted Mark, Robyn, Jeremy and myself

    Left port at 6:15am (wake up was 2:45)

    Nice sunrise


    First stop produced a couple of nice porgies and a lot of these


    Did some running and gunning trying to find something.
    Robyn was enjoying her ride offshore




    We used sardines, live pins and grunts, fresh cut bait and squid plus blocks of chum trying and trying.


    Final stop had a nice visitor show up. Robyn caught a nice sand perch and right at the surface this nice fish came up chasing. She pulled the fish out thinking it was a shark. I quickly saw what it was and grabbed the rod and the bait went back in the water. In 4 seconds fish on...




    Ended with several nice sea bass two flounder some porgies and the cobia.

    Thanks! Table works good. Had to add a little wood block under the board to help the back with all those little seabass....Bigger fish tend to be a little harder but we all improvise
