Forecast was two foot seas on 5 to 6 interval. That seems about right. Not rough but not really smooth either.

Most fishing in 70 feet along a ledge with a water temperature of 64. Caught plenty with some decent black seabass, porgies, undersized amberjack, almaco jack, and the ever present but obviously highly endangered ARS. Try to avoid catching ARS but they are pretty much everywhere. Once we catch ARS move off the mass of fish on the sounder and are then able to pick up some porgies and seabass. The porgies particularly seem to be on the edges of where many fish show on the screen. Kept the better end of the seabass, almaco and porgies for a nice variety. The almaco in this batch virtually free of worms, thankfully.

Moved closer in to try, again, to find some bonito or bluefish while trolling. Weird temperature change. Moved seven miles towards shore and water temp dropped 13 degrees. Thought that low a temp was not possible until touching the water. Picked up one false albacore and nothing else trolling for a half hour or so. Dense fog rolled in and we headed back.

Nice, I enjoy catching the knotheads when they're all blue and green. Blackfish is delicious.

Which Sailfish do you have?

Sailfish 290. Twin Yahama 300's. Great layout and features to fish and plenty fast enough ride on a good day. Maybe not the driest or smoothest on a rougher day. Works for our fair weather fishing.

I had the 236 with single Yamaha 225 for about ten years and we fished the fool out of that boat. I miss it and don't. bigsmile It seems like we would always have a cross wind coming back in and you'd certainly get spray in the boat. We almost always had the curtain up on one side of the boat. Twin 300s should push that thing nicely.

Can you get up on plane with a single 300? Its probably something worth knowing if you haven't tried it. I know that was a big selling point that the salesman would push when I was looking at the 2360 vs 236. The 2360 was a very similar boat, but with twins and it would supposedly plane on one motor in case you ever ran into trouble offshore. I didn't want to spend the extra 30k or whatever it was at the time for twins. But with the single 225, we'd troll at the ledge all day and only burn about 75 gallons. We had a lot of good times in that boat; I hope you enjoy yours just as much.

I used to fish a friend's 2360 with twin 250's. It would ROCK!
