Myself and two others went out of Deepwater this past Saturday. Started at Independence Island with limited success. Moved to Independence Point no fish. Moved to the west end of Shell. ALOT of boats there. Picked up a couple more. (don't raise a net or you'll mobbed). Sorry I won't fish like that. Moved to 8lb, found a few more. East end of Shell nothing. Slides, nothing. Made one final move to Sheephead found one more. Ended at 4 pm two short of a limit. Everything was in 30ft. Tried spinners, smiles, jigging raps, they seemed to like slow death or snell hook best. Beautiful day, great company, and fishing was ok too.

    last time at the hook, when the bite on the flats stopped, we picked up lots of fish jigging the edges 2-5' deeper...

    Great report, how fast were you trolling? what size bottom bouncers? Did you try any unorthodox tactics?
