Boynton Offshore - 4-10-12 - FINS and WAHOO - VIDEO

Another day, another fishing adventure. Cleared the inlet shortly after 9 am and was greeted by super calm seas. There were already quite a few boats out there. Put out my spread and headed East. I had found some fins in 750’ the day before, so I figured I’d head back out there. There were scattered weeds, slicks and rips along the way.

Saw some schoolies in 700’ but kept going looking for something bigger. And boy did I find it… a marlin jumping in 800’ :) I tried to get him on video or the end of my line but failed at both! Kept heading offshore. In 1020’ I saw a turtle just sitting there, so I turned in its direction, and I hooked up on the starboard long (ballyhoo)… a big dolly dancing in the distance. Then the portside long takes off too (squid pup). A double. I work the first one onto the gaff and into the box and end up flipping the second one.

Now I’m thinking cobia… so I turn back towards the beach, trolling on my way back. I spot a 2x4 with a couple of birds resting on it in 730’. I drive by it, and my portside planer pops (seawitch), and the rod starts bouncing. I reel it in and hand line the fish in, and it’s a wahoo – not too big so I just flip him!!!!

So now I scrapped the cobia hunt in favor of a king to complete the slam…. I put in at least an hour and a half looking for one, but I failed miserably again… :wink

Beautiful day offshore with my banana... LOL

    another great report, although im getting extremely green reading them everyday at work :mad
    youre really killing it the last few days
    Fishing is such great fun, I have often felt, that it really ought to be done in bed.

    Thanks guys. Really good to be back.

    Skeeter - I guess I shouldn't report today's catch :wink

    That banana made me cringe. If you can do that good with a banana on board you can do twice as good without it.
