AWESOME fishing and variety 1/25(6) LWI

Did a trip Wed AM for Mr M. Sent him to Lott Bros and he bought a pair of pimp bottom rods.
Took him to one of my spots and first drop was a STUD Mutton. Next drop was a flag tail.

Moved outside and started fishing some live bait, while prospecting the bottom.
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ holy smokes Mickey got a HUGE SMOKER, then another, and a few snakes too.
Not having a king permit, we just kept 2, and released several, feeling good about being "conservation minded". Of the 2 we kept, the biggest smoker (about 40lbs) went to Gerald and Unitarian church for their fellowship. Gerald has a kick *** smoker, nothing goes to waste. We also gave one to deck hands at Loggerhead, since they do a GREAT job, and are appreciated!!


Rest the flat and a HUGE sail is dancing towards the bow. After 20 minutes of give and take and spectacular leads , we let her go. BAM, he's on again, landing 4 more keeper muttons.

He said it was one of the best days of his life. He broke in the drags on new Torium 20's w pinke Ande real good. The sail and kings even burned his thumb a bit! LOL (#tried to warn him!)
He went home tired and proud, after docking the boat like a boss w a full box!~

I got some video of sail etc, but just doing quick report, cleaning yp, rigging for tomorrow and bed by 9.
E$=E-sleeepy. Oh today the sail that ate flat charged the boat also when it realized something was amiss. This one actually glanced off the hull and left a bill mark in gelcoat. I swear to god it nearly jumped in the boat. I saw leader go by by head and instivley DUCKED, but also got the leader touch. [email protected]!


Today was more of the same!! (sailfish, Kings, Muttons and the biggest porgies I have seen in years.
Very wide variety for his past 3 days !1 (Sails, Wahoo,Kings, Mutton, Yellowtail, Porgy, AP etc etc)

Prolly hit it again in the AM and keep ya posted. Bob is having Mutton tacos!!
Peace

    Very nice, you had a great day indeed! Thanks for the report.

    Question, with those 3-hook rigs, do you fish all the way to the bottom or mid water column? I usually put one of those red beads between the knot and the egg sinker and use enough weight to go about half way down. Had some success with it but wondering how you fished them...

    nice work...gives me some hope after seeing some pretty dismal reports on the nicer days recently. Trying to finish some work stuff maybe hit an afternoon today....

    BTW now I have your secret numbers by triangulating with the background buildings. Just kidding, if only I were that smart and devious :USA

    It depends
    If I want muttons on bottom w 15' of leader
    If I want kings I add about 1/2 ounce of lead

    Way to make the best of a tough situation! I am sure they were happy to break in those new rods the right way.
