Any trolling reports?

Thinking about dragging some big baits on Thursday nearshore reefs FM/Sanibel area.  Anyone tried this since the cooler weather?

    I'm thinking of doing the same on Friday out of Boca Grande. It should be just the right time of year and temps. Good luck.

    I ended up going trolling Sunday and got zero bites.  I know I was in the strike zone because I bumped bottom a few times and got rocked once.  Tried two reefs withing 8 miles of shore.  Did some tripletail hunting on the way in.  Got one small one and spooked a huge fish. Underestimated the current and got way too close.  No live bait just casting artificial shrimp.
