Awesome report J Lightning. I hope that's a sign of a good Spring. I need to get out there.

Definitely one of the coolest things to see. You know shit is about to go down when you see them charging.

J Lightning, great report, great catch. That's the kind of day we all look forward to. Congrats, enjoy the filets. Capt. Billy/Right Stuff Who said "it's better in the Bahamas' ?

Spoke to a Captain yesterday that knows alot of local big game captains that the big Yellowfins have been stacked up around the weather buoy recently. Makes one think about what might have been.

All I know now is that I want to get a 36' Yellowfin. What a frickin boat? Hands down the best I've been on.

J Lightning, I know how you feel. My buddy has a 39 Venture with trip 300 Yami's. I've run that from Ft Pierce inlet to Settlement point , west end in just under 2 hrs. Kick butt boat . Makes Bahamas runs easy.
Question, is the buoy 120 miles from Canaveral Inlet, and is it part of the EEZ waters ? Capt. Billy/Right Stuff

Saw a few reports of good catches from the buoy, but that is somewhat expected this time of year.

There was 3 or 4 trailers in the water before us at the ramp. We assumed multiple boats made the trip.

Any tuna caught out there.

I was out at the 80ft reefs, lots of bait but NO big catches, everything small, water was a dark green, water temp 64F, very cold, I think all the big guys ran a little deeper tp stay warm.

I then went out to the 100ft reefs and same thing, but lots of weeds accumulated and blue runners poking out. It looked good for trolling, but I was rigged up for bottom fishing,

Ran around a lot to find fish, but NO big hits on my new Simrad EVO3, so I called it a day.......but not before a friendly crew of USCG boarded me. All went well, super nice guys and humorous..... No Patriot fans aboard their boat....LOL!

Tight lines folks!

Luckyrician- when we got back we spoke to the bait shop guys and come to find out pretty much nothing was caught from 35 miles in.

There was a boat getting a fine-toothed comb for having caught some undersized bottom fish (triggers, etc). It appears the FWC officer was not being "cool bro."

Another boat that went way out there caught a bunch of mahi too.

True, I believe the other boat that caught all the dolphin went out 80 miles on the way to the 120 but we had to Cape Canaveral, I did see a couple boats getting boarded by the USCG, however I didn’t hear anything negative . The USCG folks were very cordial and accommodating..... FWC guys are another story....

i catch a ton of AMR snapper, but unfortunately I have to return them when in Federal waters.... it’s sad because O have backed dove the head boats and often see all their snapper released and dead on the reef....... almost everyone never make it back to their habitat.

Hopefully, more effective fish management is proposed soon. There is really no good reason we have such strict limits on snapper.

What was your depth 60 miles out? I fish st Augustine and expect there be coming through soon if we continue with this warm weather.

Killer trip!

Steve- I was wondering when you would pop up and tell the day of catching. Post any of your pics. Steve I'm pretty sure I found the rip/ upwheeling on Ripcharts Monday when I went back and looked at Friday's satellite images.

Tman- not sure on the exact depth as the sonar went out. Somewhere between 2250 and 3000. The owner had a new radar installed and it seemed the rigger didn't make sure everything was working correctly. He wasn't too happy.
