Fished from the hotels to CH light. Tides were really strong...when we did find bait/fish marks it was hard to stay with them but we pounded out an area near the Ramada about 2 miles off and got 6 fish from 8am to around noon I'd say (a couple of pull off's as well). Trolled north with the following sea and had a nice pick in between the ramada and the light 2.5 to 3 miles off. Ended up getting 7 more and packed it in at 3pm. Kept our 4 fish. Had two 28-30"ers and the rest were 32-37"...all very fat. Tomics on the bottom produced 2 fish. All the rest came on tandems or small umbrellas fished way back. The fish seemded to want White yesterday. 13 fish total for the day...3 or 4 pulls offs. Weatherman had it right...south wind was pretty strong in the afternoon. Bait was spotty...thick in some spots but overall, I'd say not we're accustomed to seeing in Jan. I will say there looks to be A LOT of bait stacked inside the bay right at CH light.

Nice to get out there and have a decent pick. Hope to make it out one more time before vacation (Aruba) the 21st - 28th.

Nice job Glen, we beat ourselves pretty good from the 4A to CH and then we had a 'Low oil pressure problem " so we didnt dare venture any farther south.
Didnt mark any bait till around 2:30,scraped up a few nice fish, but decided to call it around 3:30 with a couple of the crew feeling a little ill, and the oil concern.

I hear ya Lyle...I am hoping all of my mechanical issues are over for some time (after new engine, pretty major jackshaft work, etc...)

I am glad I did not run north...ride back would have $ucked!

Way to go on the fishing! Have a favor to ask of you, though. We are heading to Aruba first of March. If you don't mind, can you pass along any good places/things to do based on your trip? Also, lemme know how the fishing is, if you get a chance. May even look into that while down there.

Will do...this is our first trip there but I've heard nothing but good things. We are staying the Marriott Stellaris (I had enough Marriott points to stay 7 nights for free :) )

If you like, just ping me after the 29th...bmail or [email protected]

I don't think I will be fishing...I fish enough during the year that usually on these trips, it's Momma time (she gets seasick). If I do get out, I'll surely let you know how I do!!

Bill Pino had been reporting about some fishing down there in early Jan...
