8a was slow on Saturday. Commercial king boats even move out deeper. Scattered weeds, dirty, no bait I could find. 150' seemed to be a better number. However the front has moved through, so it might be a good starting point before moving out deeper.

I just moved (six months ****** to Merritt Island area with 23ft CC with F250. Probably get out offshore 4 times a month, would definitely be willing to buddy up, love hitting the 21/27 fathom lines, but only go on perfect days with a single. Mostly hit the weather bouy area/8a/pelican.
Anyone still doing good with the reds in the bight? I gave it a shot a few weeks ago and didn't get anything? Flounder outta be inside the jetties by now as well, with the front rolling in I might give this a shot in a few days, offshore will be blown out for a bit.

Heading out tomorrow morning out of ft. Pierce. Been getting the same reports of scattered fish between 150'-250'. Probably start trolling in the am and see what we can hook up with, but it has been tough this year so far on the troll anyways. If we have no luck trolling probably hit up some wrecks and see what's biting. Anyone fishing in the area give me a jingle on the vhf, Bull fighter

11/26 - Today was a slow day, not much life out there. Went out to Titan and trolled from 100'-150'. Nothing. Picked up and ran out a few more miles, at 230' signs a life and some large weed patches The fished lulled us to sleep and then it happened, 4 hits simultaneously. We weren't ready and in all the chaos we were only able to land one peanut Mahi. Some times you only get one shot.

Stayed for a while but nothing afterwards. Trolled back into 140' with nothing to report. My friends boat hit a bunch of red though.

It was still a good day, got on the water, met a fellow THT'er and had Mahi for dinner.

11/26- it sucked. Started trolling at 160 ft with scattered flyer's. Out at 220 ft sea came to life with pods of flyer's all over between 220 ft and 250 ft. Along with decent weedmats. Trolled the area for a long while. Had a gaffer mahi sniff a bally and turn away. Had something clean a bally off the hook. That is all that we saw.

Lyman- think I spoke to you out on the water.

It was quite choppy and between 3' to 4' with occasional 5'. Cruise out averaged about 3500 rpms @ 32 mph and on the way in cruised 3300 rpms @ 30 mph or so. Had to run further south and come back north because of the seas. Just at the mouth of Pt put the hammer down and got it up to 44 mph as a nice yellow 30+ Marlago w/ twin 300's just pulled away from us.

At the ramp felt bad for the yellow Marlago as the FWC appeared to be doing a quite intensive inspection. Loaded the boat, unloaded supplies, and had to reload the boat because it wasn't right and FWC was still inspecting the boat 30 minutes plus before we left.

Some small Bonita, my brother caught a young Marlin, it was his first time saltwater fishing. We had a blast. No mahi, but next time.

Got boarded on the way in, no tickets issued.

If that is the pic of your marlin, it sure looks like a sailfish? Sure it wasn't a sailfish?

Any fish on that raft? We cruised by it since we didn't feel like stopping.

Thought I heard that there might have been 2 out there. Was up on the party grounds and heard the CG down in Canaveral responding to a few reports.

That's what I was thinking too...about how far north they were.

Waiting to see one up around PI one of these days.

JLightning! I was with Celly on the Everglades. My buddy runs the yellow Marlargo, it's a nice rig. He hit a school of reds and pulled them in a newer reef by 8a but didn't realize the limit . He made out ok with the FWC.

We saw the same as you and not much better luck. We'll get them next time! I'd like to start meeting some more folks and going out. Celly and I had a blast.

It could of been but didn't have the larger sail. It's only my 4th time out and my brothers first. I haven't been in saltwater in 10 years or so. . And back then it was Jersey fishing for flounder, stripers, and blues.

Yeah. One also washed ashore in Satellite Beach yesterday.

I used to see them down south all the time. It is odd. Especially with the westerly wind the last few days, one would think they would be pushed out to sea.
