Went fishing out of Hillsboro yesterday... I know, it's not Port Everglades but it's close enough...

We saw weed lines all over the place... We also saw plenty of bait fish practically on the surface...

We drifted some with live gogs - no luck...

We slow trolled some with live gogs - no luck...

We drifted some more somewhere else (where Skipper saw bait on the surface) - hooked and landed (leader was touched) a big sail fish within minutes... Video and pics soon on the thread... http://www.thehulltruth.com/florida-...ng-friday.html The fish fought for about an hour and then the line broke... It would have been released anyway... Don't kill what you don't intend to eat...

We slow trolled the weed lines some more with live gogs - no luck...

Then we trolled the weed lines with dead pilchards, teasers and artificials - no luck though one pilchard had been bitten off just behind the hook...

Then we went closer inshore to try and land kings - no luck...

Weather was great, we had one good fight so all in all it was a good day!...
