The Catch
Barracuda (Great)
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)
Grouper (Black)

This trip we caught a big Black Grouper grouper while jigging!! Unreal!  We also managed to land a really nice Baracuda while Jigging as well. We were all surprised he didn’t cut through the line.  We were using 75 pound braid on a Penn 8000 spinning reel.  We started out the day trolling and we hooked up to five bonito and one mahi-mahi.  The coolest part about trolling on this day was that we had five Marlin bites with two hook ups from two monster blue Marlin! Unfortunately we lost them both. Daniel, my customer had such a good time booked a trip for the very next day! Check out the pics and fishing report for this trip, we caught a sailfish the next day!
