Default 100/400 sunday

Made the trip out yesterday just like last weekend no real weedlines to be found. So I threw on a #1planer with a ballyhoo rig behind it just to try and we were hooked up within 5 minutes. Ended up the day with 8 decent mahi mostly off the small planers. But man sunday fishing and having to work monday is gonna suck, we go home around 1:30 this morning after all the chores were done

Nice work! We were 100/400 Sunday also. Pushed off to the deep and then back into blackjack. It was hard with the scattered grass and no hard lines

The older I get, the tireder I am on the day after offshore fishing. However, the daydreaming about the previous day of fishing is just as enjoyable as ever.

I havent seen allot of reports lately so I figured I'd post our weekend find. Do any of you use a planer offshore or mostly a downrigger? I thought getting the bait down deeper since there was no weeds for shade would help and I guess it did.

yes we always have a planer bait down. typically we run a number 8 or 12. yesterday was the first day in a long time we didn't get a single bite on the planer

Had a hoo yesterday and Both a hoo and a big Bull last week on the deep line. Always have something deep. We ran a 48oz high speed type rig with 30ft of mono and instead of running a HST lure, we ran a big black and orange islander baited with a ballyhoo. Works great and easy to get in clearing stuff. Works for us, not sure how deep it goes but it’s produced and very easy to change out the lure to a HST if you get up and roll trying to find a new area. Get out there guys! This was boated with the pitch bait spinning rod. I was on the gaff and had a horrible shot but meat in the boat is better than swimming away! Fished 100/400 and BJH yesterday and 100/400 last week. 12/13 fish both days. Yesterday was tough with the weeds but we caught fish from 130-450ft
