Got on water about 7:15. 28' SE of 1&2. Trolling meat at 1.2-1.4. 2oz BB and inlines. Purple, chartreuse were best colors. Tried a down rod in our setup for the firsttime with 4oz BB (caught 3 of best fish) see pic. 1 of them actually in a jigging motion when winds died so I wouldn't be so bored.
Fish came in flurries. First 2 hours landed 10. Winds died and so did the bite. Motored to # from last year....winds picked up and bite was on again made 2nd big pass and landed 7 more in no time. So decide to pull lines, make pass #3 and winds shift and die and last hour not a bite.
Ended with 17 keepers 16-22"
Only 1 throwback at 14.5" and 3 sheepshead.
Called it a day at 11:30. Great day to be fishing. And never seen as many trucks and trailers at Sunset in past 6-7 years.

Can see why down rods are run at front of the boat. But we made it work for first time. Had green magnum Tommy Harris spider blade on it

Like the way your holders are numbered great idea especially when taking newbies out.
