    Well dudes, we didn't have very good luck this trip. It was crowded and there were few fish caught the entire day on a boat of about 65-70 people, plus crew. We caught a handful of grunts and snapper but none were keepers so we either cut em up for bait or threw em back.

    There was a few nice catches by other people, one guy caught a beautiful Mahi-mahi, another guy caught a Cobia, both were keepers. Someone caught a big Red Snapper but had to throw it back, someone else caught a Gag Grouper I believe.

    This kid caught a Red Grouper but while reeling it in, a shark came up from behind and bit the thing in half. He reeled in a half of a Red Grouper and it was still fighting lol. Then toward the end someone hooked into a 6ft, maybe bigger, Nurse shark.

    He got it to the side of the boat but it caused everybody's lines to get crossed, what a mess that was, but eventually they had to cut the line, couldn't bring him on the boat. Probably the highlight of the day. This thing looked massive and wasn't happy at all.

    The water was crystal clear and deep blue, with my polarized sunglasses I was able to see everything in the water and pretty deep down too. Just a beautiful day, and only money we spent was on tipping the crew. $40 total I think.

    They fed us breakfast and lunch and fed me unlimited beers, Bud light, but it was beer. Wife had unlimited soda. They also provide rod / reel and squid and sardines for bait. 8hrs in the sun and on the ocean about 25 miles offshore and about 100-120ft deep. I wanted to go for a swim it was so hot but they don't allow that. Not that I was serious about doing it, but f*ck I sweat my ass off.

    If any of you are in the area check out the Orlando Princess and Canaveral Princess.

    Nice Tittays! ^^^^^^^
    Anyway true story. My neighbor invites me for a far offshore trip where he went 3 for 6 on wahoo up to 40 lbs, landed some nice Mahi Mahi and had a Blue Marlin for a short time but lost it. We go to replicate it 5 days later with a sea surface temp report and the plan all mapped out.
    We leave my dock at 4 am for the run out, 40 mph for 4 hours. We start in 650 ft at 8:00 AM with high hopes. We troll for 8 hours (64 miles) with not even a single knock down. Finish trolling at 4 PM and back at the dock by 8:00 PM. Hella long day and nothing to show for it but I would and will do it again in a heartbeat. Dove off the boat in 2000 ft with the gopro just to say I did. Tight lines boys!

    Nice splittail there, nopantsLance. This is lame because it's second hand and I saw video that's it. My friend's kid went out early yesterday with a buddy, nothing was hitting but bonita. They used one for bait, caught and released a 10' bull shark, less than a mile off the PB Inlet. In by noon.

    My wife is a mermaid. I've seen her catch a 30lb plus mahi when no one else landed squat. Fish come to her. That's how she netted me.

    Ok, since there is no surf a major fishing trip is planned for this weekend. You saw the #100 yellowfin my neighbor caught, or did I show it to you? I can't remember. Anyway, we are going out 140 miles in search of Blue Marlin, Wahoo, Yellow Fin, Mahi Mahi and whatever else hits our spread. We leave Sunday morning at 5 am, troll all day sunday, eat some dinner and then drift all night for Swordfish. Then on Monday we troll for 1/2 the day and head back in. It should be an awesome experience, even if we don't score big, but I have a feeling we will. I am bringing cameras and a gopro for what should be an epic 2 days deep into the gulf, 10,000 feet deep. The preparation for this trip is insane with all the bait, rigging, logistics of the loop current, roffs reports and food (and bacardi) to stay alive. This will all be done in a 32 SeeVee center console. If you don't hear back send the coast gaurd lol. We have all the proper foul weather gear, safety equipment including multiple Epirbs and locational devices. Wish me luck and I will report back next week!

    I would like to see anyone having good luck. It's been an odd summer in Md. Everything is small, and in low numbers.

    Yeah IDK what's going on this Summer, haven't had much luck at all. Even on the deep sea boat there wasn't much biting. Something else I notice is I haven't seen any jelly fish or sting rays at the beach, like at all. Usually there's days where they are every where. So far this year, nothing. Wild life in general has been less noticeable, maybe it's just me, IDK.

    The western Long Island Sound has been a veritable wasteland this summer. All the big bass and blue heads out east during the hot months, but I'm normally able to find decent chomper blues, smaller bass and tons of porgies to keep me busy. I don't think I got skunked once last year.

    This year I'm happy to get a damn dogfish. Bait is plentiful, the whales came through but fishing has stunk. Not sure what's up, but everyone has been saying the same thing at the docks as well. Either we all got really bad at fishing over the winter or it's just a down year.

    Fingers crossed for a better fall because this is nuts...
