Home South General Fishing & The Outdoors

PE 5/17

We have a family that we are quarantining with since early March with kids that are the same age as our kids.  We decided to take them out fishing today, as the weather was supposed to be pretty nice.  We found a decent rip with scattered weeds at 450' and worked our way offshore,  There was a good bit of bait and birds working in 700' but no fish on the troll in either the 450' or 700' areas.  We worked out to our deep drop spot and had a couple nice stringers of Rosies before one of the kids started feeling queezy, so we came in and tied up to one of the bouy balls south of PE.  Kids swam and caught grunts until they were tired.  So we caught dinner but didn't hear of much going on.  On the radio someone caught some schoolies in 750; and someone caught some in 1200' but seems like its still pretty stow offshore.  Lots of people complaining about the west wind and no bites.  Heard of one sail and one blackfin caught on the reef but didn't sound much better inshore.  Hope everyone can get out there this week and enjoy being on the water.  Pics to follow......
