This water temp sure makes for a hot day on the water.
We have made a few stops on small fish.
Nothing to report at lunch time.
It's starting to look like it is a night fishing thing.
We are going to cover more area this afternoon and see if we can come up with anything worthy

We got everyone on board last night and happy to get started .
We fish for bait and purchased bait from the locals.
It was a very nice experience the Panga fisherman were very polite and conducted business very professionally.
I would recommend getting bait from them to anyone.
We made it up to the offshore grounds and hour before daylight and had a little sign with 4 fish hooked but only one landed....
153 pounder .
We had another that looked good at color at least high hundreds.
Anyway just getting situated here and on the move .
No bites after daylight.
We will post later
