Me and Amy went out just by ourselves. We left at 7 pm and trolled out just for fun and to save fuel. We played around with some kings and bnitas till we got to the Tarpon rig. We slept there and threw a shark line out. Don't try to catch a 7 foot shark on a torium 30 with 30 lb test. I really dont remember putting the shark line out but when I heard it go off at 3 am I remembered. Not fun hung over at 3 am. Broke the line and we went back to sleep. Also I apparently put another shark line out and in the morning found a half eaten sand shark with just the head left. Well after some BC powder and one quick drop there we trolled out to where ever we were going. It was nice just to have a break and take a ride instead of trying to fill the box. I was told by another boat that pulled up to the rig there were limits of nice snaps to 10 lbs at the tarpon rig. Apperantly the head boats knew that also. We were just trying to catch bonita for Wednesday when we were going to go offshore with Capt. Larry Mathys(BUDA BLUEWATER BOY). Made it out to 30 mile rigs and trolled around hoping we would find something in close. The water was blue before 8 miles out and pretty nice at 30. The only thing we hooked into was a monster Blackfin Tuna. I couldnt believe how big he was. We decided we burnrd enough fuel so we came back in to get some crawfish. So total body count was bait and chum for wednesday and 1 blackfin. Slow trolling once again for us but we were only 30 out due to insufficient funds. The AJs are from werd. with Larry. Can anyone identify that little mean looking fish? I'll let Larry give the report on Wednesday. Kings were fun at the ships moored at night. We pulled quite a few off just for fun. Adios

I am guessing you werent all that worried about the rods you put in the water but more worried about the one in the boat.
