I decided Monday the 24th was the day and spent Sunday getting ready.
We met at the boat at 7:30 am and were on the water in no time. I had a game plan all worked out and was feeling pretty confident. All of that was about to change.
As we headed out to the first spot the weather started to decline rapidly. The sky turned dark and the wind picked up. On top of that not even a bite. By the second spot I was sure it was going to rain and still no bites.
I worked the grounds hard for these guys but to no avail.
Luckily it never rained on us but the bite was not happening. We decided to try spot number three. We even trolled on our way over to it and didn't get a bite.
Before we got to the third spot the weather cleared and the wind died. It was going to be a nice day after all.
We arrive to the third location and it looked fishy enough as it always does. By now the guys are using a lot lighter tackle. After what seemed like an eternity, Josh catches a small Coral Trout. He follows that up with a fish I have yet to ID. If you know what it is let me know.
Then he adds a nice Job fish and a small Trevally.
Things slow down again and it is time to move on to what I am hoping will be a fishy spot at the bottom of the tide.
About three casts into this spot Josh is on again, only this is a little better fish. It turns out to be a Bluefin Trevally.
His determination is only matched by his level of fitness in his ability to cast the whole day.
Jimmy is not on the board either. Although he is nursing a really bad motor cross injury. So casting is only done occasionally.
Josh then catches a nice GT, while Jimmy jumps in for the leader and tail grab.
What started out as a dark and gloomy morning with no fish turned out to be a nice day with a few nice fish and a great bunch of guys.
