PE Offshore 06/17

Well Tiny Tim is back. Took the motor off and have another rebuilt 150 Johnson. With a full load it doesn’t go as fast, but it will make it. There were hundreds of boats at daybreak. Starting at 4 miles out there were very nice weed lines running north and south. There was a weedline every mile. We stopped at the 4th one, get our lines ready anddd there’s 3 boats circling us in 1 minute. So we packed up and went off. There were no other weedlines but we did find our own place at the 53 line. I said “this looks fishy.... BAM” first one in the boat. Boat came at us, close enough to where we couldn’t move. Patiently waited and Headed south and east and west. Found a few boards and lots and lots of floating white debris. We picked up our second fish, and then another and an 8 inch dolphin. We trailed a few small birds but they weren’t on anything. A friend of ours got 4 within the fleet of boats. Nothing big. See you guys soon hopefully

    I see those outriggers! There’s mr big. Nice fish! Where did you run out of? 
    My brother in law went out 25 miles today got 4 fish. Someone else we know got 4 more today as well. Nothing big, but the only way to get a big boy like that is to fish em. 
    I may take a ride to the keys this week and give it a go... if I do I will post, as usual.

    19 years ago today was the last day my grandfather went fishin with us. We went out 20 miles and caught 4 schoolies. On the way in we caught a 30 lb dolphin in 350ft and a wahoo at 200ft. Both in green water. His last fish was a wahoo. Pretty neat.

    Neal,
    Have a great trip to WE, looking forward to your report. Wish I could be there...
    I believe Remy is going to Bimini.
    Hope you slay them.
