The crew consisted of Rob Logan, from Clinton MS, along with his 3 sons, Reese, Alex, & Lee. The day started out looking pretty nice with calm seas and being greeted by a nice weed line close to FH-2 where we were starting out. However, the fish had a different idea. The bait fish around the sargassum were being difficult and our hot snapper spot in FH-2 was not doing anything either. We hit a shrimp boat and had some great fun landing several bonito and a couple Jack Crevalle. One of the Jacks weighed 34 pounds and was caught on an Ambassador 6000 with 10 pound test and took over an hour to land. We also managed to hook a Cobia, but he was 1/4 of an inch too short. We headed deeper to the 100 foot rigs where there had been reports of Sow snapper, but we found none. A quick dive to assess the situation also did not find any Sows, but did yield a nice 46 pound Amberjack who was cruising all alone. We went even deeper to FH-7 and beyond, but big fish were not to be found. Alot of smaller undersized fish were caught and kept the crew busy and everyone said they had fun. It was a full day encompassing 14.5 hours and 136.1 miles.
