Straight out north currently. 120FOW headed East. SOG 2.7, speed at the ball is 2.2. Worked between 150 and 120 FOW. No fish yet, some bait closer to 150FOW but small schools. Temp at 69ft down is 41.8deg. Looks like everyone is east of us.

Never mind the ball, lets see something with gills!


I wish. We’ve covered close to 30 miles looking for anything. Besides a few random fish and bait balls, we aren’t finding much.

It was tough. We stayed out until 2:30. Worked into 90FOW right of of Mexico and found some bait, marks and temp. We could watch the streaks on the sonar looking at our stuff but no takers. Tomorrow is another day. We stopped and picked up some herring for the meat rigs. Headed west right away and going from there.

Thanks for all the info.  This past Saturday 2.8 downspeed was the ticket.  Anything slower and didn’t move a rod.  All 19 bites i had came when downspeed was 2.8. And on meat rigs and 4-5 on FF. Ran two spoons for 30min without a knockoff.  Had to play with both motors and bags to get speed right due to currents but when i did all hell would break loose.  The past few weeks prior all my hits came at slower speeds 2.1-2.3Amazing how it changes day to day.  Good luck with you next trip. Tight lines.

That’s a fancy one! Stuff north wind, they probably are Canadian beach balls!
