4/26/16 gaffers in the box aboard 32' world cat IMAGINE

We assembled the crew at Lighthouse Point in Palm City at 6 a.m. .Pete (sword a wet) Johnalki and Rod.
Heading out asap hoping to beat the train and clear the bridge ,instead of the 45 minute wait we endured.
Clearing the inlet and heading North to 75' we deployed our ballyhoo array and teasers and got a mystery bite
that dropped off and Rob dropped the line back but :banghead. Next a nice fin hits the long rigger and Rob has the fish on and after a few jumps and a gaff shot it, in the box.
We here chatter on the radio and pull in the gear and head to push button @ 280' we see a few boats and start to troll the surrounding area and have our second nice gaffer hooked up and I was fighting the fish as Rob and Pete cleared all the gear on the port side .Beside the boat Rob sinks the gaff and #2 is in the box. Next up was a slinger that we threw in the box as we had released a peanut to start off the day. ,Trolling around the hill thinking the bite was over Pete says pull in the lines and we get a double hookup and a Chinese fire drill and a happy ending to a great day fishing with friends. dredge from Billy Bones
