10/27 offshore cudas, kingfish and snapper

Met up at the dock at 7 AM to head out for some fishing. The weather conditions were a little less than ideal, with a steady 15-20 knot wind out of the NE. We didnt let conditions deter us. We pushed out of Boca Grande Pass about 20 miles in search of a bottom bite. The lane snapper bite was great, with some good size ones coming over the side. We managed a few short red grouper as well. Got ready to change spots and our youngest angler wasnt feeling so great and wanted to head back in. We started heading in and with the boat moving, he begin to feel better. Made the call to try fishing one of the artificial reefs/wrecks on the way back in. We marked a good show, and dropped down some bottom baits as well as put out a flatline. About 15 minutes goes by and the flatline goes off. The fish turned out to be a cobia which unfortunately came unglued. We put the flat line out again, and had 2 hits on it, as well as a couple big hits on the bottom that just didnt come to fruition. The bite slowed and we decided to see if we couldn’t troll up some action. This was the perfect call. We deployed two lines, one with a big spoon, the second with a large lipped diving plug. The diving plug got all the action. It was hit after hit of good size barracudas as well as kingfish. We landed several, lost a couple due to some high flying acrobatics, and lost another kingfish to a much larger predator. Winds shifted to out of the east about 10knots and seas laid down for a most a great ride back in.
Looking forward to some cooler temps, and hopefully less wind!!
