On leaving the marina the wind was calm and sea conditions were perfect for a great day of fishing, so I decided to head around the northern tip of the island, which can at this time of the year be a bit rough. Fishing around the point is always good so we decided to go for it due to the favourable conditions.
We were using balihoo as bait, with 1 downrigged at 70 ft and 1 just below the surface and 2 on the outriggers. I had noticed that the fish that week had been biting a lot more on the top lines so one of my lower lines was not set as deep as usual.
Fish were on within the first hour, landing a double header from both outriggers and about half hour later a third Mahi Mahi on the lower rod set at 10 feet below the surface. Everyone had a chance to land their own fish, Mrs Spangler (fishing for her first time) landing the biggest Dolphin 30 lbs. What a great job.
After 3 hrs and feeling like everyone had accomplished their tasks they decided to take the last hour to relax and have a most rewarding swim on the tranquil west coast. Who could ask for more?
