    11-3-12 Be King For The Day -- Jupiter!

    Mrs. LA and I had VERY high hopes for some fin action today and we cleared Jupiter Inlet bright and early at 7AM. Skipped the live bait as we were prepared for trolling our ballys and headed northeast toward Hobe Sound and encountered some very sloppy seas in about 275 feet. Put out our spread and marched around for over an hour with no takers. Switched out our long middle line to my home made daisy chain and hooked up with a small boney....not what we wanted but something in the boat. Nearly a month ago we hooked up with quite a number of nice BFT on my chain but not today. I must say NOAA forecast was way off, and it was definitely wet and sloppy with mostly 3-4' seas at tight intervals at this depth. We kinda tired of this after awhile and made our way back to 200 feet or so where at least it was not wet. Could only score some more bonita which are fun but not what we came for. Decided to keep heading SE towards our known bottom fishing spots...sincerely disappointed in our trolling efforts! Oh well, started cranking the tunes and began to score some very nice yellowtails...ended up keeping over 15 but threw back over 10 nice fish. Also caught several short almaco jacks and the Mrs. hooked up with a huge queen trigger and a few short red grouper. Thankfully the free line sardine came through right at 130 PM with a very nice 40 inch kingfish, awesomely gaffed by Mrs. LA! In da boat and we are very happy campers! Most of the tails were at least 14-18 inches and hit the usual sardines and silversides. Stopped at the Square Grouper for a few cocktails! Fun and gloriously sunny day offshore.

    Enjoy the few pics and tight lines to all!

    Patrick and Nancy,

    Way to go!!!!!!!!

    I heard several reports of sloppy seas.

    Most up this way who I spoke with came back empty handed ... so way to go.

    Cheers
