    Cudjoe Offshore 2-25 : Another BIG Dolphin

    Well, I must be living right or something ! For the second time in three days we’ve put a big Mahi in the boat. Two days ago it was with Dave on his boat in 275 feet off American Shoal. ( http://forums.floridasportsman.com/s...h-posting-%29s )

    Today Susan and I took advantage of the great weather to head back offshore on our boat and hooked up in 575 feet just on the outside edge of the ups and down. Just like 3 days ago, it was the only hit we had all day.

    Today’s fish was 50 inches fork length and 37.4 lbs.

    Fish hit a black/purple skirted ballyhoo. Wind south very light, seas flat and water temp 78.6

    That's a stud phin, and to catch it just a couple days after a 30lber you must be livin' right. I wonder if it has to do with this mild winter/spring we've been having. Great job

    Nice job on the phin. Keep at it for the "3 banger". Found loads of schoolies south again yesterday. Lots of floating debris out there right now, looks like a tanker had a bunch of pallets fall off it.

    Bill, Susan actually kept time ;) Started about 11:55, hit the deck at 12:25. Lots of time to sweat about whether my knots and wire work was going to hold up.
