    Similar. Left Mayport and headed south looking for bait. Gave up at Red Tops. Trolled Red Tops for about an hour, out to 55, and back to 30' without a hit, pulling diving lures and a spoon with a sea witch. Went to PG area, trolled another hour and a half, found only Bonita but couldn't get them to take what we threw at them. Nothing to talk about off the bottom, so we headed west toward Jax Beach and trolled in 40' back to Mayport. Not a strike on the troll the entire day.
