I had Mike, Ray, Johnny, Owen, Jeff, and Bob join me on the james gang today. Yesterday I dislocated my left hip, and I wasn't sure if we were going to get out. I called a few guys and another captain to go on the trip to help out, and I am glad that I did.

We went northeast of the inlet and hit 5 spots in 55 to 80 feet of water. Best action was 10 miles off the beach in very clean blue water. We were by ourselves except for a brief stop at one wreck.

The guys put 30 keepers in the boat to 5.5 pounds, and threw back at least 60 shorts. We also caught Bonita, blue fish, and mackerel. It was a great way to end our fluke season. Blackfishing will be here before you know it. Book your trip now, choice weekend dates are filling up.

Wow! That's impressive.

Great job JT Hope your hip gets better soon. I had 7 dislocations of my shoulder and finally had to get it fixed.

Great trip John!
Men and fish are alike. They both get into trouble when they open their mouths.
