A few days late. Mom and I headed out at 830am for a quick trip on Memorial Day (Thanks to all of our heroes and their families)…beautiful ocean. Hit a number 9 miles south of the rocks in ~50’ that I haven’t fished in over ten years. First and only anchor attempt ended with us directly over the fish…caught a bunch of borderline blackfish, kept a handful of nice knotheads and a BIG grunt (thought it was a shark, also caught 2 of them). Spanish came up a few times but not for long at any one time, we didn’t mess with them. Back to the dock at 12:30 after a fun morning of non stop action. Mom fished with squid until we ran out, then switched to cut pinfish. I exclusively used an 80g slow pitch jig (not tipped with anything)…I caught less but larger fish on average compared to bait…my hookup ratio greatly improved after 30 mins, once I removed the clear hard plastic barb protector on the jig ; )
Nice job Sailfish and those getting the site cleaned up and moving back toward the good old days. Much appreciated.
