Key West, Gulfside, 14 Jan

Went out with Kirk aboard his Grady White yesterday to hunt for some Cobia on the Gulf wrecks.

Was a little bumpy on the southside when we left the dock, so I was glad that we were headed to the Gulf. Stopped by the airport marker to get some Pilchards for the live well, and they are there. After sabiking some up we headed for the Gulf.

Sad to say that we didn't find and Cobia, but conditions were awesome. Flat calm seas, clear skies.

While we didn't find any Cobia, there were plaenty of other things to catch and fill the box with. Would have liked to kept this Grouper, but he went back in the water to be caught another day....

Snappers were biting too....

The bottom machine was marking fish all day.

We also caught lots of Mackerel (Cero and Spanish), Mutton Snapper (thought I had a pic, but must be on Kirk's camera), Jacks and LOTS of Blue Runners.

After a great day fishing, it's always nice to sit in the pit of Easy Rider and watch the sunset with friends. :)

    Harlan... Couple of weeks ago I was catching them on the Wilkes and the Maryland Hump, so I thought for sure the North wrecks would be covered up. Not the case....yet. :)

    Here recently I've had two events where my bottom machine looked like that...I was slow cruising with my wife and it was over hard bottom but I didn't have any gear to take advantage. Truth is, I figured my machine needed an adjustment or something. Now I know different. Thanks for the great pics, Rob.
