  • Friday offshore - anyone?

    Who wants to run offshore on Friday? I think Artie said they were planning to run offshore. Anyone else? If the weather holds up at 1 - 2 feet then I am running out to troll for wahoo and dolphin (and a chance and Mr. Bill). [8D]

    If it holds at 1-2 and the chop is nice, I will run my 17 offshore. Likely to do some bottom fishing though.

      I too am planning to run offshore Friday (weather permitting), however I do not know if I will go Nipple far - I don't have right tackle and would probably just be burning gas. I haven't done any blue water trolling in 10 years and do not have any rigs. I am currently working on some super secret private bottom stuff and if that doesn't pan out public reefs and the edge.

          Oh well[], contact just called and all private stuff that far east was lost in Ivan and never replaced [xx(].

          Someone wanna give me a quick lesson in trolling for wahoo and dolphin? I have gear, that while not perfect will work, standup rods with penn 330's and a pair of slammers with 650 penn spinn reels, I just don't have the tackle. Any pointers welcome. I am hitting Florida fishing forums now in search of hints.

            Dave, we will indeed miss the Hodson gang this year. But your are not alone. Ryan won't be making the trip this year either. So next year you guys will be back in action with us! And I may even have my own boat in the water by then... probably wishful thinking.

              Stay positive...fishful thinking!

              Dave the Hodson's will be missed.

              Chuck - you can troll either some rigged ballyhoo (available pre-rigged at Wally World, and most local tackle shops). Some deep diving plugs work great as well, such as the Stretch Mann's. Check out Pensacolafishingforum.com and you can find some more information.

                cheapest solution will be to go with a couple bags of frozen hoo's but will probably catch mostly Kings and the occasional Dolphin. If you really want to increase your odds for Wahoo, use a mix of stretch 25's, ceder plugs, and big yozuri swim baits trolled just fast enough so the stretch 25's don't blow out of the water. Purple/black and red/orange are good colors. Throw in a couple of smaller bright yellow/blue feathers for the Dolphins.

                  I don't know much - but I know Wahoo have big sharp teeth. You need to rig your baits with a few feet of wire to keep them.
