SI Hoo and Mahi 09/21

Ok fellas, finally got the Salty Dawg back out with new motors and electronics yesterday with my brother and good friend. Tip of the Hat and a BIG thank you to Boaters Exchange in Rockledge for getting the boat re-rigged with 150's (the Parker had 115's before being kidnapped) and electronics. We broke the inlet at 8ish and hit 140' slightly SE of Bethel shoal and found a nice weed line. Seas were 2 footers on the way out and darn near flat on the run back in, NE Swell was being put down by the west winds yesterday. Absolutely gorgeous out there, no storms or anything to be concerned about.

Dropped a planer at about 138' and ran it about 30' deep with an Islander Pink & Blue skirted ballyhoo along the weed line with 2 other lines on the top, 1 pulling a naked ballyhoo and then one pulling a marauder dolphin plug. 1st Mahi in at 10:30am, water was 83. Put the lines back out and slow trolled at 5 knots and about 11:15 on Blue & Green Islander skirted ballyhoo the hoo hits hard, heads deep. Yanked her back to the boat nice and easy, gaff'd and put in the box. It was a super day and good to be back. Thanks to all again for the positive vibes, texts, call, and emails. Have a great week!!
