One of my buddy's recently bought a 1971 Mako 19, and we had the maiden voyage offshore of Ponce inlet FL. on Monday. Beautiful calm morning, heading out the inlet just before sunrise. We are not at all familiar with this style of fishing, being inshore flats fishing guys, but had some fun bottom fishing over one of the artificial reefs a few miles out. Managed a few sharks, 1 whiting, and a school of bull Reds popped up briefly near enough for me to get 1 cast off with a 4000 size reel and light rod. First cast of the morning, and since we were primarily bottom fishing, I was glad I brought along a rod with a DOA Baitbuster that is supposedly a great Tarpon bait. Good little battle with a light rig. 42" and pretty stout. Mike

Nice Bull! They are always fun to catch on light tackle.

During bull running season we use 2" chunks of cut bait free lined.

It's a time and half day for me.... Installing two new 30 ton RTU's with soft ducts.

Hope those that are fishing have an Excellent Day! keep an eye out on the weather (Central Florida)...

Added a new species on the Kenai River with David.

With all the silvers, kings, and sockeye they have, the pinks are seen as dog food...but fun to catch!

The wife had a conference in Naples and we stayed on the beach. Brought a spinning rod and fly rod, but the red tide was horrible. Drove down to Everglades City on Tuesday and fished off the seawall at the Rod and Gun club. Caught two keeper mangrove snapper right away and then started nailing these guys! That's a 5" Goliath Grouper (aka Jewfish)! Caught 6 of them total, with the smallest one being 4". Hard to imagine that as a 500lb adult!

Before anyone asks...no. They do not put up a fight at that size!! :D :D
