Multiple Species Specialist
Left the dock before daylight and had to throttle back all the way out to keep from burning my limited supply of fuel. Can you say "ice cream day!" Had to be back at the dock by 2pm, so stayed close. Picked up chicken dolphin at 12-mile weedline...I almost went into shock when a ling in the 100 plus class swam up to the boat for handouts. He's still out there cause I didn't have anything rigged to handle a fish of his size (he looked like the Incredible Hulk w/ fins.) Bumped out to 90' fishing rigs and shrimp boats without much action, there was plenty of broken weed once we got into the blue water. Trolled around a wreck in 87' and C&R'd cudas, kingd and one nice sail on light tackle. Shrimp boats were everywhere, most of them looking for some cold ones to trade, didn't have any because my crew drank them all the night before...note to self, take plenty of cheap beer this weekend!
