Dolphin and Triggers Offshore Report

Saw the reports and the weather was laying down nicely for sunday so talked my buddy into going out on his boat deep for dolphin. Most reports we had read were saying 600'+ was the bite so we headed out at 4:45am from mayport (29 Century deep V cruises around 30-35mph) got out there in decent time and saw that water temp was 75 degrees as we came up to the ledge. Decided to put in the lines in 160' and it paid off quickly. Had all 5 lines in the water and a minute or two later we had our first fish on which was a good fish. Bite was hot in the morning had a few double headers and a triple hookup at one time. Lost a couple good fish but ended up going 10/13 on dolphin and trolled north towards our bottom spot leaving the weedlines behind. We probably could have managed a couple more fish if we had stayed but wanted to head the 10 miles north to spot while trolling and picked up another nice fish on the way. Bottom fishing was ideal not much current and we slow drifted over the spot continuing to catch nice triggers that we've done well on before at this spot. Great day out deep with 10/13 dolphin and 23 triggerfish and a couple porgies. Sounded like everyone headed out deep to 600'+ and didnt do as great as we did.
