I received a call from a Dad wanting to take his family fishing, but they didn’t want to go trolling. I said no problem and booked them a drift fishing trip here in Palm Beach. We left the dock this morning at 8:00 and headed south below the Breakers Hotel. When I pulled the throttles back I quickly discovered there was virtually no South to North current from the Gulf Stream, and that the wind from the East was going to control our drift. We made repeated drifts between the Breakers and the Dodge Wall, the entire family having a blast catching Banded Rudderfish, Red Groupers, and Queen and Grey Triggers. Couldn’t ask for a nicer day !
