This time last year, the sargassum was thick at 300' 700' and 1100'. Pull up to a large weed mat, chunk and start reeling in 24" - 30" fish. This year, no weeds to speak of, troll for hours and pick up one or two. What's your take? My adult sons are coming into town the first week in August and would like to get on some Mahi out of the LWI.

This year not as much weed & all of our fish are caught pitching baits. We've been getting on the peanuts & sorting threw 20-40 to get a few flipper fins. None so far blind trolling.
