Quick report as I need to go to work. Lol. Have to sometime. Rick and I made it a quick trip. 5:40 left Dana harbor with a scoop of great mixed bait! Got to the 312 the spot that has been very productive. But temp break was not there. 63 only. We ran toward 209 found our mammal friends!! And 64/65 water break(Key)We put in Halco cedar (natural) and Mexican flag caught two skippy !! Then moved to other side of ponies. Got hit on the Halco huge run Big jump them popped!! Hoo friend gone. Then we ended day with 6 yft 4 skippy all released!! One unintentional !!! Lol. TL

Great job. Hopefully sticks around after theses fronts move thru. Did u get YFT on bait(chove) or all troll fish?
All but one on the troll, just would not stick around, Grant but then we were not too patient. We also let them all go (except five bonito we caught by the Barber poles for lobster bait for tomorrow nite) this tends to pull all fish away when they swim off.

Ya, I was out last week and only got troll fish. Couldn't get them to stick around either. They were moving really fast with ponies. Sure like fighting them on that light tackle over troll!! Thanks again for the report! Hopefully we can find them again next week. I know they will be there.
