Report from St Augustine 1-18
I went on my first ever high speed trolling trip Friday out of St Augustine. Didn't catch a wahoo but everything (gear and whatnot) seemed to work the way I intended with only a couple of things I think I need to change, so that's a plus. We did see a huge wahoo jump clean out of the water at about 50 miles out, so there out there for sure. We trolled around that area for a while then headed on out to the first drop off of the ledge. The water was nice and blue and about 72 degrees. Caught some bee-liners and grunts and a barracuda, so not a bad day. Looks like it may be a while before I can try it again. The weather and seas were unbelievable Friday. We were able to run 30 mph all the way out. Looks like it's going to be pretty sloppy for a while now though. Saw another big wahoo jump on the way in at nearly the same spot as the first too, so I guess we may try it there for a little longer next time.
