    SLI and PBI 6/10-6/15


    Headed out at around 11:30am. Loaded up the well with sardines at bull shark. Water was pretty and because of the full moon, we thought we would high speed troll and look for some wahoo. I put out a daisy chain as well as the Yozuri bonita on the wire line. We were trolling at 13kts and worked from 70ft to push button. Daisy chain got nailed by a little sailfish, but lost it after a few minutes. Decided to head back in and bump troll. Huge color change/rip in 58fow that went for miles. Trolled it and immediately got whacked by 2 bonitos. Then we reset and another double, this time though a huge 80lb summertime sail and a mahi. Got the mahi in and had to chase the sail that ate a bottom stinger rig. Got it close and there was a sail right next to it. After it saw the boat it took off. Got the leader touch! Reset and got 2 more schoolie mahis. All in 58-62 ft of water. Not a bad day.


    Broke the inlet at around 7. Same deal loaded up with sardines at bullshark. Little rougher than the reports but very manageable. Managed a few kings and a few bonitas. Slow after the full moon.


    Went out of Palm beach with a buddy. Got some sardines and bump trolled them in 50-90fow off of the Breakers. Got nailed in 60 by a huge king and broke my wire stinger rig in half! Went out to 90fow and tons of scattered weeds and remoras. Went back where the bait was in 50-60 and managed 3 small kings. Guy next to me at the fillet table said there was debris everywhere out deep and crushed the mahi. All between 20-25 inches, so nothing special, but hey that's better than the past few months of nada!

    Good Report JBJ. Glad to hear you are getting out there. May start running trips on the cabo out of the marina in the near future!
