Trip Info

The Catch
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)

We had a short trip today with the Dalton crew.

We headed out to find some king mackerel, since the bite has been really hot. For some reason, the kings didn’t cooperate today but the bonito were thick.

We caught everyone’s fill of bonito and decided to head to a different area and on the way we found a mess of mahi on some debris. We had to get creative since they were being a little finicky, but we managed to put quite a few in the box before we headed in.

The highlight of the day, was 6 year old Peter catching a mahi on his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle rod. He hooked and caught it all on his own, which made it even sweeter. Definitely a moment I’ll never forget and I don’t think he will either.

Hope to see the crew back again soon!

Tight Lines, Captain Jesse
