7/19 Offshore Yellowtails Galore + Big grouper

Saturday the conditions could not have been more favorable, I thought the 5 or less conditions are supposed to happen in the week when we all work.. First thing went and picked up a well full of pilchards and pinfish behind B span before starting our way out to 120'. On the way there, we found numerous new spikes and each held fish. Anywhere from 1 to 3 fish were pulled up from a new number. All of which were very good sizes, largest being 33". 2:30 rolled around and we had 10 big red grouper and a nice porgy, we set up and threw out my special yellowtail chum. In 5 minutes, they were balled up on the surface. By 4 pm we had our limit of 50 in the boat, the bite was red hot. Pilchards and squid were the primary baits on 1/8th oz circle hook jigs. The predators were mean and nasty for sure, we had two big bulls patrolling our slick as the numerous 40lb+ cud's sat under the boat. Big rods and large reels drag cranked to the max were the ticket to get the fish in the boat. The average size for the tails were 16" with the largest coming in shy of 22".

Also, as a side note.. Our motors are now up to 76 hours.. Time sure flies...

Tight lines, Chris :fishing:fishing:fishing
