    Just one of them lucky days - PC Feb 6th

    Went out yesterday – primarily at the start for kings and triple tail which were holding off Port Canaveral (according to all the reports). Went to 8A and Chris Benson for kings – dead, nada. I had an inkling to go look for some ‘phins even though it’s early – way early – and there’s been no reports of people catching much of them.

    Headed to deeper water from the Chris Benson reef. Dead all the way out with no signs of weeds, rips – nothing. Finally in much deeper water saw a rip. Stopped to rig up a few ballyhoo to troll. Found a big floating log/tree in the rip. On a pass – fish on. Reeling in the other line and fish on. Ended up boating 28 phins all in a little over an hour and a half. All their buddies coming to the boat hungry. Eating what ever we threw at them – squid, cigar minnow halves. 3 people on the boat - constant pandemonium. Triple hook ups and all.

    Just one of those lucky days. We could have been 600 yards north or south of where that log was when we were headed east and missed it completely. Another boat way out there saw us and came on over and got in on some of the fun. They were thankful we shared. The fish gods/karma were with us and we passed it on.

    Coming back in saw a few sailfish jumping and one just cruising on the top. Trolled a while but could not get a bite.

    Congrats!!!! What a day. Finding a log is like the holy grail. Man, I had some invites to go fishing but there was no way to get off of work (proposal reviews). Picture a guy in his office right now banging his head on his monitor & drooling on his keyboard. Every wkd I want to fish and it's rough seas, finally a day of calm water, which I normally can take off, nada.
