Started out this morning headed for the blue water in search of Wahoo, Dolphin, Sailfish, etc.. It was forecast to be west winds at 10 and 2-3 feet out to 60 miles. We got out to about 23 miles and I realized the weather wasn't going to be that nice. It was already starting to get rough and really windy and we still had 40 miles to go. I've been there too many times before and knew that the smart thing to do is pull up, fish close, and wait for the seas to lay down. We fished a a few places all withing that 23-25 mile range and the winds never let up. They stayed a constant 15 out of the SW, W, then NW all day. The seas were 3-4 feet and whitecaps all day. So much for the blue water, but it didn't matter; the bottom fish were on fire! We ended with 10 Genuine Red Snapper, 4 Mangrove Snapper, 9 Vermillion Snapper, 1 Mutton Snapper, 8 Triggerfish, a few sea bass, and a 40lb+ amberjack. We also caught some throwback snapper and grouper, a bunch of sharks, and a few monstor barracuda in the 40lb range. Great crew, bad conditions, nice finish! Thanks guys!
