Seemed to be the only boat out actually catching anything! For a slow day we missed a marlin , landed 4 good sailfish and a very tasty mahi mahi .
By the end of the day we were the most exhausted and happy fishermen.  The captain and crew worked non stop ! Dont know they lasted in that heat ! Hats off to them .
