Gotta love Venice!!
We just finished up with a few days of
fishing, and the last day was truly insane!!
The first couple of days were
good, as we were finding plenty of Blacks, AJ's, and the occasional Yellow, but Sunday just
went off. We started the day off like usual, chasing the mobile FAD's, and
finding plenty of Blacks. It didn't take too long before we had about all the
Blacks we wanted, so we decided to take a lunch break. We were just drifting
around, enjoying the day when I happened to look at the sounder. WOW!! We had
fish all under the boat! We started feeding them, and the Blacks came up really
fast, and then the Yellows showed. Lots of them, and all of them BIG!!! We put
one bait out, and a Yellow swallowed it up. The crazy thing was that during the
fight, all the other fish that had decided to live under our boat just followed
us around. After putting the first one in the boat we started feeding the fish
again, and yep, the Yellows were still there. Hooked another and followed him
around , while all his buddies stayed with us. We put him in the boat and
satrted the whole process over again, hooked another, and yep, the rest of them
followed us. CRAZY!
About half way through the fight the XM weather alarm
went off, telling us we had a front coming with 60 MPH winds, lightning, and
hail so after getting our last little friend in the boat we headed North,
leaving all our other new found freinds behind.
We wound up the day with 3
Yellows all over a 100lb, with the largest weighing in at 188lb. not to mention
all the Blacks from earlier in the day.
The coolest thing came when we got
back to the dock, only to find that everyone got on them. Capt Eddie had 2 over
100 lb with his largest going 224 lb, Capt Peace had one about 170lb, and Capt
Bret had one about 150 lb!!
All in all we had 7 giant Yellows laying on the
dock and it was 2:00 PM!!
Gotta love Venice.
