Memorial Day Fishing Trip
The Sea Drag’n took its first trip offshore to break in the new motors.
We left out of Wrightsvile Beach around 6:00 am on Monday. We had the lines in the water at around 8:00 am at the same ole hole 62 miles offshore. The water temp was about 80 degrees, but there was no good break. The weeds were scattered and no birds in sight. Action was slow to begin.
We finally got a bite on the long line and put a nice 30 lb. Mahi in the box. The crew fished four more hours with only two short bites. There were lots of boats also in search of something good for grill, but there was little to no action going on.
We headed back inshore for some bottom feeders and picked up a couple of Groupers and let go some nice Snappers. It was great being on the water. Sea conditions were good and the crew had a good time playing tug a war with the bottom feeders.
The Sea Drag'n's motors are officially broke in and running great. The live bait rods are primed and ready to be put on the boat.
Let the 2010 Kingfish season begin!!!
