4/26 offshore report

Lemme start by saying its a dead bait bite through and through. We ran out to 115 and fished two spots 10 of the 24 coming off of the last hole of the day. We fished 6 guys and did fairly well on dine/squid combo mixed with butter flied pig fish, pin fish, and sand perch.

    Nice cooler full. We fished the same depth yesterday and had similar results. Nice job. Sure was a nice day out there!

    On our trip it was all live bait. Squirrels, grunts, and pins were favored over sardines but I don't think we ever even tried dead bait because the livies were getting hammered. Once mangos started showing up I tried to put down a frozen dine and it got nibbled to bone but I didn't resize from my grouper gear so that wasn't totally unexpected. I think the two mangos we did get were caught on live though.

    I usually use both types. After the chumbag is in, I start out with a squid/dine or minnow combo. That lets the grunts and little guys tear it up some and get more scent in the water. After I catch a few grouper on dead stuff, That's when the live pinfish and cigar minnows come out. Usually the first ones to bite the livies are either the biggest or smallest ones of the day. Great report either way, wish I could get that far out.
    Paddle faster, I hear banjo music.
