Crazy weekend, hereís a few pics from Fridayís trip. Iíll post todayís trip soon. Weather was perfect Friday, but went running on the beach then fishing for big fish and close offshore rigs instead of waking super early for trout. Weather became dead calm after dodging a few midday storms and we went out of whiskey pass. The big black tip was 1 inch too short to keep but was a fun fight off of last islandís surf. Hammered the bluefish and Spanish mackrel at the rigs ending up with two dozen nice 2-4lbers and a big 25lb jack chervelle on jigging spoons, rattletraps and big jigs. Missed a couple big fish, one was a lemon fish which popped me in the rig. Then caught this big 82lb stingray on cut mullet on the bottom. The action was relentless and nonstop. My girl loved it and she caught two bluefish at a time on a rattletrap twice. We fished through sunset in the glass calm gulf. Every cast at every rig was a fish.
Last week I was posting on eating jack so Iíll try him out this week since I never have before. Also my previous post from a few weeks was inquiring about stingray so I kept him and have the meat marinating up, so weíll see how it goes too. I love me some bluefish and if you donít soak them in water and cut the redmeat out they stay firm and taste great imo. Also since the meat is mushier like choupic and doesnít freeze well. I like making fish patties with them and freezing the patties.
