 Wednesday, April 20, 2016 - The Trip after the Blow Back

Report: After waiting basically 2 weeks for the wind to back off it was nice to head off into a nice ocean. Because the ride was so nice we stretched it out a little. As we are heading offshore a navy ship calls me on the radio and asks if I will assist with an overturned vessel. Of course I agree to assist. The coordinates he gave me were 5 miles from our location so we took off in that direction. We reached the vessel and it appeared to be a "pull behind" typically found being towed by a large pleasure boat; something they use to travel from their anchored yacht to the dock, etc... There was a tow line still secured to the bow and it didn't have any numbers on it. We relayed that information to the USCG, to include there were no visible signs of any passengers present or nearby. They followed up with an aerial helicopter search. I never heard anything materialize from it. I'm guessing it capsized during travel in the rough weather we've had the last week or so which caused the tow line to snap. The owner probably didn't even know they lost it. We left there and started bottom fishing. The monster beeliners are preparing to spawn so they were everywhere we went. We limited out with 30 fat ones on the first stop. We bounced around from there looking for something other than beeliners. We ended up with 30 beeliners up to 20", 19 trigger fish, 24 amberines, a couple porgies, a small dolphin who came cruising by the boat, and a huge sandbar shark we released. We also released several red snapper, at least another limit of big beeliners, and a short cobia. See more pics on our Facebook page @ www.facebook.com/jacksonvillefishingcharters
