FPI 4/11 action

Left out of fpi before sun up with a live well full of pilchards. Stopped at the last can to drop a Sabiki and to my surprise I picked up a single Gog. I’m not used to catching those unless I’m in the Jupiter area.

Seas were 1-2’ tight but a nice easy ride out, almost like summer.
Observed scattered weed from 150’ out to 450’. Few guys on 68 said there were mats out in 650/1000’ 

Picked up 2 dolphin in 280 before 8:30am
Moved out to 400-450 and had a double with sails.
After about an hour deep I moved back into 300 and picked up another 4 dolphin.

had one hook pull and hammerhead as by-catch

    Congrats....you had a lot better luck than us today.  We got 3 small mahi.  We tried went out to 400ft + but couldn't find weeds.  We finally headed a little more south to 265ft and that is where we found the 3.  Curious we're you north or south of the inlet?

    Probably a bit south if not due east.

    Interesting we were probably in the same area most of the day.

    Good day in my book I agree with the guys on 68 I've been staying 1000+ lately an have had good luck an big weed mats out around 1500 to 2000ft but I'm also out of palm beach so it's only 20 miles for me compared to 35 for y'all up that way.
