Home East Central General Fishing & The Outdoors

PC 3/24/16

Headed out about sun up to find a bumpy ride out. We saw no weeds all day very few birds, no rips we could recognize. Sky was overcast. Due to the bumpy ride (noaa 41009 said 3.6 seemed every bit of it) we dropped in early about 110 ft and trolled east. We did not see another boat out all day but talked to several back at the ramp who said they pushed out further, but had no fish?? Our game plan was to push out deeper but with the condition we flexed.

Drug over structures after structure and finally found a peanut. Made it on out to about 150 the worked north and found our first decent cow. Number three comes an hour later, heading north again on a blue lure. Blue was definitely the color of the day. Trolled naked and skirted ballyhoo, skipped the live bait hassle this time. Each fish was found singly and working the same area provided nothing more. Unlike most days where we run and gun from structure to structure or rip, weedline to flying fish, we trolled almost the entire time. The run in was much faster at 30plus but on the edge of stuffing the bow.

My **** (as he calls himself, short for Retired) pastor and friend Larry fighting his first dolphin, another one hooked on the offshore!
