8/23 Key West Offshore

Took an hour to find some decent water and a nice weed line. I shook lines often but the Mahi didn't care. Lines were weeded up but as long as I was shaking them it was game on! Left them biting with 14 in the cooler. Countless bites that didn't come tight because so many phins in the spread. Biggest is about 25lb COW! Stayed in 700'. Don't even bother going shallower than that...mainly small triggers on all the weed patches till the 700' mark...Go and get um'

    Just a great day there....curious what they were hitting, rigged ballys or naked plugs?

    Everything hit with meat. My spread was chin weighted Blue/white, Pink/white and Pink witches. Had a naked chin weighted on my WWB and ran a hoo with no chin weight skirted with a chugger. Only ran 5 lines and had to get rid of the WWB because I was getting tired of re-baiting all the lines. Hope that helps!

    Most definitely, similar to what we use and good to hear...the bite definitely seems to be on.

    Definitely a group effort on cleaning! Beer to stay hydrated and tunes to keep motivated! Right now I'm eating some fresh tacos with home made mango salsa and a avocado lime sauce! We cleared 39lbs of fillets!
