CAT CAY WAHOOOO! DAY TRIP 12/21

With school out and a few days before we hit the slopes, Joseph wanted to take one of his BFFs wahoo fishing to show him what a big wahoo looks and feels like.

With all the slow reports (including my single last week) coming out of West End, it was time to hunt elsewhere. I set my eyes on Cat Cay to avoid potential Bimini crowds and run around. This is as close as we got to Bimini....

I had my first and "other son" along as well as Joseph's friend Marc and his dad Peter. Cleared the inlet around 6:40am. Cruised gently around 30 kts which put us there on time for a 9am clearing...

Tied up at the fuel dock. Kids used a 30 for some dock fishing while I cleared. It was efficient. Place is cool.

We fished south and landed four fish - two very solid hoos. Big ones came on wire lines and Joseph showed Marc that he just CAN'T turn the handle on the 80W unless you press the magic low speed button.

We also did a bit of deep dropping and took the kids over the reef to play for bit... Marc and his dad were stoked with big hoos and day adventure...

Kids enjoyed some ice cream :grin

Finally around 5 pm, convinced the kids it was time to head home...

Lit her up and pushed the sticks forward and had a smooth run home at 40 kts.

Back at the dock, Nick showed off his surgical skills...

Have some nice GoPro footage of the action that I'll put together later...
