A wind direction change knocked down the sea's, and we averaged 38mph
out and in, which gave us more time to fish. Fishing was nice also! This
trip was all trolling, and Mahi for a fish fry was the target spesis. We only
found 3, but those three were 50 pounds of fish, so a lot of meat.
First fish came soon after lines went in. This was the smallest of the 3, but
still a nice fish. It was the anglers first Mahi also
Next fish was a little bigger. Another first time Mahi catch. It took a half
hour to find it, though in the same general area. All the fish were solo's,
with no other observable fish with them.
Third Mahi was the largest of the day, between 25 and 30 pounds. Again
it took some time to find it, but eventually it came. We continued working
the area a while with a few hit and misses, and finally moved on. The rest
of the time out deeper was around the weather buoy, and only Cuda and a
Remora were caught there.
We decided to finish the day trying to pick up a few Kings for my guest
new smoker. We caught 2, in one pass down the lenth of 8A .
Both fish were first time King catch's for the anglers.
We ended up with several gallon sized bags full of fish, and tired but
happy anglers at the end of the day. That about all you can hope for when
you go out fishing!

Sweet! I was in the Keys last week (till yesterday) and the mahi are still coming this way. Big ones too!

Thanks for the report! Sounds like a good day to me! That first "king" looks like a BIGGG spanish or Cero....?

Agree with KPfish, and was one of your anglers hungy and chewed the tail off?

Another King brought up on a boat next to us came up cut off
at its mid section. I thought this fish looked a little spotty, but it
had the lateral line dip, where Cero, and even Spanish have
straight lateral lines. Maybe it was a hybrid!

Yesterday (Wed) we saw a large school of big sharks at 8A, so
maybe they were having a little snack!
