First report so be kind. Left mayport a little after 5 on Tuesday. A little more choppy than I was hoping for. Trolled for hoo’s for an hour or two then decided to bottom bump. Ended up with a nice mutton, a big scamp, about 20 triggers, a few beeliner’s, and a lone dolphin. Trolled on the way in for about an hour, but no luck on wahoo. Sounds like Wednesday was a better day, but work gets in the way. Overall a good trip. Laid down nice on the way home.

    Sounds like a great day to me. Thanks for posting your report. What'd the scamp eat. Been awhile since I've caught a scamp. Used to catch a lot of them out of port Canaveral when we were kids.

    Thanks for the report Capt. Sounds like some good groceries! I heard the wahoo are in closer right now less than 20 fathom.

    How far did you go? What depth did you troll?

    Heard the wahoo were in closer as well. We started at 135’ and headed east to about 200’ then back in. Bottom fished about 160’. Mutton was on squid if I recall.
