    SE Coxes-Sunday

    Pushed off promptly at 5AM with a plan to bounce iron on the hard bottom SE of Coxes Ledge. Made a pass thru the Mud Hole on our 32 mile journey SE,saw lots of bait, large school of dolphins, and a lonely tuna air out. Decided to keep pushing to our destination. Ride out was FAC. Hit the ledge and the water turned quickly from 67 degrees to 72 degrees. Arrived at our first spot as the only boat around, and a massive school of Chick Mahi busting the surface chasing bait. Started bailing them on light spinning gear and small deadly dicks. Put 30 or so on ice before switching gears to bounce iron clams for "Dogfish" I mean Cod Did manage some very nice sea bass on jigs. Tried numerous spots for cod with nothing to show for it. Decided to head north west and try a wreck up on the ledge. Ran into another school of mahi in the 73.9 degree water. Played with them for 30 min or so and put a few more in the box as these were larger fish. Tried once again for cod only to find doggie after doggie........OK enough of our "Cod Dream" Out went the 30's with Reel Draggin Tackle green splashers....trolled towards home while filleting the chix POP ZZZZZZZZZ found a school of false albacore that were enticed by the splashers.......nice to hear the 30's sing again

    Got the fish filleted, and headed for the barn in the glassy slick conditions....felt good to hit the near offshore waters



    Final tally for the day DOGFISH chick mahi, Sea Bass, Monster Choggie False Albacore, and a Ande Stand-up trolling rod

    When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home
