    Offshore Saturday 9/1/12

    Got a late start saturaday morning but decided to run offshore anyway. Stopped at bug and bait was tough, couldnt get anything but 2lb runners. Gave up on bait and ran offshore. In 400 found 2 frigats circling and decided to troll. After 10 min without a hit we agreed to pick up and continue running. In 1000 we found a huge flock of frigats circling and diving on fish. On our first pass, both rods start screaming and up comes two 10lb skipjacks. Second pass gets a nice dolphin and third gets another skipjack. While fighting the skipjack we drifted across a five gallon bucket which we kept our eye on. After landing the last skipjack we ran over to the bucket and dropped a vertical jig. First drop gets an almaco. Second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth get wahoo. Right before we left this bucket we landed another nice dolphin. After this we called it quits because it was 4:00 and getting choppy. Here are some pics.

    Honestly this was the first time I've caught wahoo on jig. All I did was drop it down 100 ft and jig it normally. Within 10 seconds I would hook one

    Nice job guys. But do you really think keeping those two Weehoos was worth it? You should have let those little guys go so that they could grow and be cought again at a bigger weight. other than that nice job!

    Yeah one of 'em is really small, there is no size limit only 2 pp per day. Sashimi is typically better with smaller fish...maybe thats why?

    nice work out there guys

    dont forget to make some smoked wahoo dip with one of those weeehhooossss

    dropping a vertical jig while fishing floaters is always a good idea!

    Vertical jigs, bucktails, trolling lures, Deep Drop Rigs and more!
