Took some newbies out today. Heard about the barely legal ones in all the weed mats out to 100 ft so blew by those hoping for some better defined stuff and less people. :-)
Didn't see a lot so started trolling SE at about 20 off. Spotted a decent looking slick around 23 off with very minimal stuff in it but well defined so headed down it. Maybe 15 min later we get a double and then one more on a chunk. Pretty happy cause w 2 17 yr olds and a 13 yr old of which none fish much, was glad to get some action
Spun around and went over same area and got another double and pulled the hook n 2 more

Trolled that for a while w nothing else and saw another slick inside maybe 1/2 mile and went to it. 20 min in we get a triple and after dropping 2 spinners back w chunks ended up w 5 hooked up at once. Linda and I were all over the boat keeping lines untangled and get the fish in. There were a few more w them but they didn't stick around.
Ended the day w 10 fins...25-32 inches. 
Had storms E of us but never got into them.
Fun day w the newbies.

    Did better then me, was out there yesterday. Heard there was a better and bigger line a little further out with some bigger fish outta Miami. After 20+ miles you start to question what your running to, always thinking there will be something just a little further.
