Caught Aboard the:
Amy, Keith, Aron, Jason and Danny
for a full day.
Today my fishing buddies were Amy,
Keith, Aron, Jason and Danny from Georgia for a full day of offshore fishing.
Stopped on the beach as usual and picked up a few pogies for
the live well but elected not to go after the Kingfish in hopes of
tapping into the Mahi again. The bite for dolphin was all but
non-existent and we were only able to catch two small bailers for our
efforts. I went the extra miles to no avail for the Mahi. We hit weed
lines at 120, 160, 220, 320 feet of water and I even went for broke and
ran out to 58 nautical miles to a weedline on the other side and were
rewarded with a barracuda for my efforts.
The highlight of the day was the catch and release of a
sailfish, a first for Keith and really the only real excitement for the
The weather was beautiful and it was a great day with great
people, but unfortunately we could not find the Mahi we wanted to make
for the fish fry for my clients. Boy I really hate it when it happens
but, I guess that's why they call it fishing.
Final tally for the day:
1 Sailfish released to fight another day
2 Small Mahi
Keith and his Sailfish!
One of the two small Mahi.
