Left MB around 5pm on Saturday with a scoop of bait that had tiny anchovies mixed in. Not great. Joined fleet at 226/302. First fish caught on a jig around twilight. Estimated 60lbs. Nothing all night long.. even sportfishing boats went to sleep. No one on the rail. Next fish comes at twilight on sinker rig on 80lb test. Estimated 50#. Mako takes tail but we get fish. Nothing for a few hours. Next fish comes on sinker rig 30lb test, 20# fish. We try to fly kite for a few hours and then give up and go in. Back in harbor by 2pm. My first of many overnight trips. I had a blast. Only burned 40-50 gallons gas. Mostly spent on going slow through the headsea sat evening

    Brother.... nice post and picts. You know.....when your doing the overnight thing.... you never know....what's gonna swim under the boat. When drifting at night.... high spots provide plenty of action on "deep drop" baits. If your gonna be out there....why not be where it counts. Look at the current....and tides....winds etc. Sometimes a move of half a mile... could change the whole trip. Again.....Great job!
