The Catch
King Mackerel (Kingfish)
Spanish Mackerel

We had another great day on the water, spent with the Bounds family. We headed east for some king mackerel and it didn’t take long to find them.

We pulled artificial plugs and nearly every pass was a hook up. This went on for a couple hours. We caught several shorts and missed even more, but ended up with 6 king mackerel and 1 spanish mackerel for the box.

We ran across a small school of chicken dolphin and threw everything but the sink and couldn’t get a single one of them to hook up. We even scaled down to 12# fluorocarbon but they weren’t having it.

The kids were great today, full of energy and curiosity. Can’t wait for the next round with the Bounds.

Tight Lines,
Capt. Jesse
