Definitely a 5 today, Started fishing about 9:00 AM. Kicker wouldn’t stay running so I trolled with 115 HP main motor. I thought for sure with all the noise and vibration I was doomed. 10 minutes later I had 4 fish on boat all 14 to 18 Cutts. I was catching most fish due north of weather bouy. Over the next 3 hours 6 more. My friend and his wife were extatic.
I pulled factory hooks off wedding ring and replaced with 2 red hooks baited up with pink maggots by Gulp. No more worms for me. I do much better on these maggots.
25 feet on wire 70 feet behind boat.
