hit the rocks at 4:15 for a very long(3.5hrs) ride out against close 2/3’SE seas head on. arrived at the 380 hole at almost 8 & started dragging. water temp was 72.3 very little life. turned around 11mi. past the 226 & trolled back towards the ledge, at 2pm we had 3 fish in the box and one other knock down. water went as high 77.9 and a low of 72. back in 350’ we were slammed by a school we saw incoming frome 30yrds out. 7 of 8 lines went off and we boated 4. the next hour was fun as the fish went through our spread. lost one at the rail, pulled the hook. lost several more with early season terminal tackle issues. ended the day with a doz. good fish 12 to 20 lbs, not bad for our frist trolling trip this year. weather was awesome and ride in was wide open. great day on omega3 with capt. (should have gaffed him) Jimmey, auggie dog and son tqsusmc22! color or style didn’t seem to matter, dinks to the downrigger.Boaters in Jax. thur & fri were catching 20 to 30 each along with yfts. next week , time to callin sick!
