JL - Did you get any trolling in? I'm wondering how the weeds are near the stream?

Weeds everywhere at the 27fa and had a school of small mahi under us as we were snapper fishing that we released.Water was dirty at the ledge though.

Pretty work Sneakattack! Way to get the kids hooked at such a young age. Good job on the bass too, hard to find a keeper these days.

Yes sir we threw a bunch back that were actually 13 only kept them if they were 14 or over. Both my son and daughter love being on the water and I figured there will come a day when its not cool to hang out with dad, so Im getting it in while I can.

Getting them involved at that age they likely will always find it cool to go fishing with Dad.

Lagoon & Dogslife- I made a tactical switch on Friday afternoon.

Decided to buddy boat with a friend out of Ponce. My dad and I ended up with 1 red snapper (20 lb'r), 1 beeliner, and 2 porgies. I lost 2 big red snapper just below the boat when they broke my 40 lb chicken rig leader and we threw back 6 small beeliner's and 1 small red snapper.

Default Saturday ARS

Fished Saturday in 125-135

and got our limit quick. Kept fishing just for fun and ended the day keeping our six and relaseing probably 19 more with one sea bass and Bonita in the mix. Only complaint was people not venting fish. Saw a bunch floating which we vented and sent down to include one I had to jump in and retrieve as he was swimming away from the boat. Vented and sent back down.

If you troll between N and S Pelican expect Cuda, King, and maybe a Dolphin (I've got plenty around there), but the cuda are thick now and I'd rather catch a blowfish than reel in a cuda. Should be plenty of poles bent and baits torn up. Run another 5-10 miles east and maybe weed out some cuda and snag a wahoo!

Can't help with anything on the bottom - me el sucko

Sounds like a good day. 20 is big girl

Made it out late Sunday afternoon for some trolling, 160-180'. Nice clean weed lines/rips, peanut action. Would have liked to spent time deeper, but too late in the day.

Lagoonakin: We have not had a wahoo yet this year...my son would be over the moon if we could land one this weekend. Are they around here now, and would you maybe share a little bit more advice on how best to pursue one? Why target 5-10 miles east of Pelican? Is there some structure there that holds fish usually? Thank you, very much.

it is really difficult to actually target wahoo out of PC, more of a bi-catch in my opinion, you can troll the cones or high speed but no guarantees, not like out of Jax or Mayport where you can target them on the ledge, we have caught them out of PC but not frequently

Yet there are a handful of boats out of Ponce who crush it over the winter months. Can the Port really be that different from Ponce ? I always assumed it came down to putting in the time to find their hot spots and also dedicating the long / boring hours trolling all over the place for them. I honestly do not know if I have to patience and hope to dedicate that much time without getting negative thoughts of failure and wasted time / money.

I don't have the experience or gear to target wahoo via HST, but will pull large baits 8-10 knts, with wahoo in mind during a full moon cycle. Lyman and I landed a nice one (35-40 lbs) last full moon, on the falling tide, near a ledge. Did we get lucky? Maybe, maybe not, but we were in the correct area, at the correct time, with the correct presentation.

I know of several other catches during the last FM cycle, so we weren't alone. Are they still there? I'll find out Friday
