This was a trip by Antonio Palazzolo along with his friends Robert, Brian, and Diep, all from Gautier and Ocean Springs, Mississippi. They desired a half day trip, which I usually don't run, but their schedule insisted. Initially we were going to fish quickly and get back to the Islands for a bit, but we couldn't seem to hook anything but Red Snapper. We kept getting some really good hookups that were breaking us off and so we kept trying to get that take home fish. We even had a Cobia teasing us at boatside as if to say, "No fish for dinner tonight, haha". He would follow our jig around and kept circling the boat, but no bite. Anyway, we never made it to the Islands, but we had a great time with lots of tugging on the lines. Total trip encompassed 61.4 miles, 7.2 hours, and 37.2 gallons of fuel.
