Great start today as we got an early start on our Yellowtail and they were biting full speed till we moved the boat around noon. Everyone got in on the action, Salas yo yo jigs, Sardines, dropper loop were all the hot ticket. Throw in a couple of exotic's and there you have it. We made a move and see what happens tonight and tomorrow on the big bite down here. Great weather as well. Check back tomorrow, Jeff

We experienced another great day here on the Independence as we added another 40 or so premium Yellowtail and a few Grouper along with 36 nice fat Wahoo. Everyone had a chance at these speedsters and it was great to see all the first time Wahoo guys get some. We are going to keep trying for Wahoo tomorrow and see if we can keep the ball rolling, so wish us luck, Jeff , oh yeah the weather is outstanding


by Indy Crew, 7-14-2016

We enjoyed another action packed day on board the Indy today as the Wahoo put on a great show right after daylight and steady action till about 1300 hours. Again today, the Capt Jimmy Bombs ruled the deck along with Salas 6x Jr. Tar Baby and a few on Sardines. There were ample opportunity's for all and when it was all said and done 37 more Skinnies now rest in the RSW with the rest of them. We also tagged some Alijos grade Yellowtail as well. We are now gaining altitude getting in position for the grand finale. The weather is outstanding, sea ya later, Jeff & the Indy crew
