PBI 5/10

Fished with a buddy from Texas yesterday looking for some Phins. Netted some ramp mullet and headed south. Got a couple of bonita in 120, but tons of scattered weeds. Worked our way out to 1600 and found the weeds starting to stack up in 630, but still tons of scattered weeds and no bait under any of it. Missed a nice phin there, short strike on blue/white islander. Worked that line for an hr with nothing to show. Came back in to 180 off the condos and put the mullet out. Ended up going 1 for 3 on Sails, my buddys 1st billfish👍

    Nice fish! What kind of rod and reel are you using there?

    It's an Avet LX 6.0/1 on a Penn Ally 30-80# rod. Decent set up, very versatile and fairly inexpensive ($250 reel/$125 rod). I run Ande Pink 40# on them and use them for trolling and live baiting👍
