We made a few moves to try and get away from the aj's with no luck.
Made the decision to push off deep for big triggers, so we threw out the high speed stuff and got hammered at 18 kts. We pulled the hooks on that one.
Found the triggers in 210 feet. Dropped anchor and landed right on the mess and soon enough the guys put a nice catch of 60 or so jumbo triggers in the brine tank despite setting sideways on the rode with strong current and stronger than forecast winds.
The conditions for bottom dropping got worse so we pulled anchor and worked back in and had a nice mid forties hoo eat a small green machine / bird combo on mono. He made it too the gaff and we crammed it into the brine tank for a nice finish to the day.
It was a fun day with a fun crew and everybody got a pile of fish for many tasty dinners. The weather wasn't as pretty as it was supposed to be, but the fish were chewing. We managed to not lose a single jig, although one of my high speed lures got fubar pretty bad. It will be replaced with one of Capt' Bob's HooDoos, those things are gonna kill some hoos.
