Pompano to Boca Raton Inlet -- Thursday Drift 7/23/15
At 7am launched off Pompano beach at SE 12th St with 3 live gogs. Weeds were still thick all the way out to 170ft, then thinned out in deeper water. Current was strong, but not as bad as last week, manageble -- could have made it back to the launch, but decided to make it a drift instead of the hard peddle, plus wanted to fish the wrecks just south of Boca Inlet. Dragged the gogs around most the morning without a bite, eventually loosing them to weed tangles. Verticle jigging was slow, meter some good fish marks, but very few strikes. Saw a sailfish jumping just North of the Deerfield Bch pier, but unfortnately all my bait was dead by then. I believe as a result of an incoming tide, the current was ripping 3kts at the wrecks just south of Boca Inlet....unable to fish them. Transit to the Boca Boat ramp was easy as a result of the incoming tide. Landed at the ramp around 3pm with 2 small kings and 2 medium bonitas. 1 king caught on a dead gog, and the rest caught verticle jigging.
