Mahi Mahi in December?!

The Catch
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)
Tuna (Blackfin)

Talk about a small world! We fished the Stuart family who are based in Hong Kong and work with the
H2O pro lures and tackle there.
Live bait has been scarce so the crew loaded up from the bait boat.  The edge was in 500’ and looked
very active with birds and scattered weed. Capt John had the mate set out a nice trolling spread and
they were rewarded with larger single Mahi Mahi-not the normal December catch but very acceptable!
The flurry of action was on the edge with single and double bites.  The edge ended as fast at it appeared
and so the crew set up kite fishing on a faint edge.  The baits were fresh but there was just a bonita
on the long kite. After enjoying lunch, the group decided to go back to trolling. The last part of the
trip they captures a few king fish that were released and some happy but tired anglers returned to
the dock.
