    Hi Jon, would be interested in a slow pitch trip. I am going to be busy for work the next two weeks and will be unavailable. I will be available end of April and the beginning of May. I was looking at a jigging web site and they say you have to drift to stay vertical or the slow pitch does not work. When the boat is not moving the jig and line goes away from the boat and when you reel to move the jig, all you are doing is moving the line and your jig doesn't move. A trip back to the dry dock would be fun, there are always lots of big leviathans hanging around. I am thinking the slow pitch would work good there to keep from getting hits from cudas and AJ's. More chance of getting cobia, African pompano, nice b-liners ect.
