    ran out toward the 302, seas were a little bumpy, but not horrible, as we were able to run at 18 to 20 knots...the wind never did become an issue as we thought it might be...

    was cloudy all day...nice

    water temps were near 72 at nine mile bank and high 67s/68 at 302

    we started trolling at 3 miles short of the 302 and were attacked by skippies in less than 5 minutes. Lost count of the skippies we caught after 20 or was it 30...

    we trolled between this 3 mile area and the 302 till around 12:33 and then started to troll back to the nine to see if we could find paddies with dodos...never did...only more of them pesky yet fun to pull on skippies...my Unc from South Dakota loved it.

    the skippies loved the 2 small chrome jet heads we had out(pink and black/purple)...the other 3 lures were rarely hit...the other 3 were black/purple woody which was only hit once, well...actually the skippy was snagged in the side, the zuker abortion was hit twice and the zuker 3.5 mean joe green was never touched

    will try again on monday and wednesday and friday next week...

    of all the other boats I heard on the radio, it was only skippies, no YF...BUT...one boat did get a dodo on the troll, on a mex flag feather I think he said

    Jet heads rule.
    Something about the bubbles makes me happy when trolling.

    I was in that area too on Friday. Skippypalooza. Just kept praying that one of the hook ups would be a YF. Nope. I checked the counts that night, and it was all skipjack on the sporties. At least we were fishin though, instead of just the 10 hour boat ride!

    I think it's more fun pulling on skipjack all day than trolling 12 hours for a single fish.

    We got dodos last 2 weeks on feathers. Only further south
