Sebastian Inlet Offshore 04/02/12

Another slow day of fishing. Still not many fish being caught. Most boats gave up around noon and went bottom fishing. There was also the option to go king fishing outside the inlet with the fleet but opted not to.I decided to look for wahoo back in at 130' where we caught our last one on Friday. Started the day out in 170' worked out to 350' and then picked up and ran back into 130'. Trolled around there for a few hours and Michelle our mate picked up this wahoo. Any wahoo is a good wahoo in my book.

    Nice fish! Thanks for the report, the ocean looks a lot better that it did last weekend. :banghead

    What did you catch the Wahoo on? One of my all time favorite fish. :obscene

    Michelle is our new mate. Don't let her good looks fool you. She runs the deck as well as anyone. She brought up the idea to me at first I was really hesitant. I have had experiences with other female's who "knew how to fish". She can hold her own and she is a wahoo magnet.

    The ocean was like a lake yesterday afternoon. Just beautiful!

    I had a Braid Marauder and a Rapala X-rap magnum 30 trolled in the wash and I had a small Zucker's tuna feather in the shotgun position. The wahoo took the shotgun pink and white tuna feather.

    Here she is... uh hum..... setting her own lure spread.
