4/4 BBI dolphin and tuna

Out for another afternoon trip. Left Boynton Inlet around 1pm and Forrest Gump’d it and just kept running until we found a slick with scattered weeds 24ish miles offshore. Picked up a nice slammer dolphin in 1900 and missed another about an hour later. Picked up two tuna as well. Dolphin bite is heating up for sure. Didn’t weigh the fish but guessing around 25 pounds

    Blackfin or skipjack?  Were they as deep as the dorado?

    Nice catching for sure. 
    You got good appetizers & a nice main course there. 

    25 miles out is starting to get pretty close to the EEZ.  If you don't know what that is, you might want to read up on boundaries.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for posting.

    Are we not allowed to fish further than 25 miles offshore?? I know most tournaments set that boundary but I always thought you could fish further as long as you’re not closer than 12 miles to any part of the Bahamas

    Bahamas EEZ is halfway between US and bahamas if you are past there you are fishing in Bahamas waters.
