GOOD DAY DEEP DROPPING PE 1/13

With the NW wind we had our minds set on dropping.
We first tried the reef for kings and nothing and then
went to some of our #s off Hollywood.The bite was on
both reels bringing up 4 at a time.Then comes over the radio
there is navy is closing between 3 and 6 miles offshore and
10 miles to the south.One boat comes over and says we are
close to the area and said we were ok.Well 10 minutes later
here comes another boat with sirens on and said get out here.
No problem go north and in 780 into the rosefish again.We were
close to are tile #s and made first drift 2 tile on loose one other
one 11 lbs.Made a couple more drifts and picked up 1 more tile.
Ended up with 20 lbs of rosefish filet.8 LBS OF TILE
GATEKEEPER WILL POST PICS

    The day was good tonight saute rosefish and shrimp.
  • OMG, 20 lbs of rosie fillets.

    You will have so much mercury in your system , we will be able to tell the temperature by looking in your eyes.

    Sometime have a fillet tested and I bet you don't eat one again! Well at least not 20 Lbs of them. Absolutely great tasting fish, but be careful and moderate you intake.


    Oh, but great fishing and nice on the tile, too!

    Neal!
    I got the pics from Remy you sent. Outstanding! Love seeing those tiles. I think they are about to be shut down if I read the report right. Nice going on the Rosies.
    Starting to think about the trip to West End with your group coming up. Weather permitting, I'm planning to be there.
    :thumbsup

    Pura Vida!

    At that depth are you marking fish or simply looking for uneven bottom?

    Yes we mark fish but really look for good bottom.Alot
    of times we just stop and start dropping at 780 ft.We
    have made drifts as long as 15 miles if current is right
    and we continue to catch fish.

    Never caught a rossie, they look like really good eating fish.

    Rosies have nice white meat, but I find them a little bland for my particular tastes. I don't usually target them but keep them as by catch. They do make good ceviche though. .

    Do you ever catch "streamer bass" when you are into the rosies and tiles?? We run into them once in a while in the mid atlantic deep dropping. VERY beautiful fish, small and tasty too.

    http://mernetwork.com/index/attachment.php?attachmentid=5561&d=1345609717 Not sure if this works, but this is a picture, very cool looking fish! Some scientists claim they are very rare, but not in the deep mid atlantic, no unusual to catch one or two when the bite is on. http://mernetwork.com/index/attachment.php?attachmentid=5561&d=1345609717

    I have only caught one of those off of Broward County in over 25 years of Deep Dropping.
    I have also caught only one of these which are related.

    Yes, like Ron said, the Rosies are FULL of mercury. I can drive down and take them off your hands......lol

    Great job on getting on the bite!

    Great job plastered. I might be taking my daughter out Saturday morning and you may have convinced me to make a few drops after we hit the reefs.
