Trip Info

The Catch
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)
Marlin (Blue)

we departed Florida for the Abaco’s on the 14th with beautiful crossing weather.  Fishing the first day was a little slow so we did lunch at a few local hotspots by boat and got rerigged for the next day to fish all day.  The wind shifted so I chose a different location to fish. After about an hour of prospecting we had a decent sized blue on the right teaser she ended up eating a bait off the left and it was on.  After about 10 minutes we pulled the hook.  Frustrated we set the lines back out, after the first turn another blue on the right short rigger.  After a 30 minute fight we had this guy up by the boat for a few pics and a release.  Everyone was pumped and we did the same thing again, and sure enough we hooked another blue but lost this one as well after about 15 to 20 minutes.  we also caught a couple of dolphin and Jim got his first wahoo a little later on.  A nice one at that.  We are currently in the northern Abacos getting ready to return stateside then it off to Chub Cay next week.
