Trip Info

The Catch
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)

We booked a half day wanting to hit the deep blue water. Also wanted a chance at a Tarpon. Pulled up on a spot and had hundreds of Tarpon rolling. Fished for about half an hour but no chance they had lock jaw. No one in site was catching. We headed off shore and saw several turtles on the way. Found a nice rip and started to troll in about 500 foot of water then we were hooked up. Caught a nice Mahi Mahi. Lines back in the water and found several tarpon rolling stopped to fish, however they were headed somewhere pretty fast not interested in Jigs, Live bait, or anything. But that’s how the roll. Ha ha.

Had a great trip, headed back home for an 8 hour drive.
