    I enjoy your videos. You guys operate like a well oiled machine.
    Congratulations on getting those nice Golden Tiles. It's always exciting to see them come up. You have some good numbers for catching them as well as the Rosies.

    How deep were you when you caught the Golden Tiles? And, were you south, or north of Port Everglades? And, if you want to PM me with me your numbers, that would be fine too. :wink :grin

    Pura Vida!

    Way to go i knew you would find them.
    One tip mount you rod holders straight
    off gunnels and you wont have to fight
    your motor.Both rods on same side.
    Go catch some more.:fishing

    Thanks Plastered, do you mean mount them straight of gunnels by holding the rods in our hand while letting the rod rest on the gunnel? And have you had any luck with the barrels around here? Thats my next fish to cross off before we go deep for swords.

    remel, I agree with plasered.
    I'm pretty sure he means this: (this is what I've done on a buddy's boat)

    Put one rod aft in the gunnel rodholder with the line straight out to the side (I fish port side) - the second rod is as far forward as you can go, in a rodholder, SAME SIDE as the aft rod.
    Make sure you don't drop baits at the same time - stagger the drop and retrieve.

    That has worked for us with very few problems getting crossed up with the other line.
    Current and boat angle/position to the current has a lot to do with it working properly.

    Catch'em'up!

    Pura Vida!

    Anyone have tips for Barrels? Do they still exist and how do I search for them?

    Look out in the 900 ft range.When you get
    one be ready to get slimmed.I take a deck
    brush and get off as much as i can.

    Nice job guys. Goldens are on my bucket list, and I might just go out and give it a try tomorrow afternoon on the way out to the sword grounds. Thanks for the inspiration and a great video.
