11/21 Gaffer Dolphin on Inflatable Raft

Cleared Boca Inlet at 6am in my 15ft inflatable with a 20hp. The mission today was to head offshore in search of Dolphin. The seas were 2-3 with some 4-5 ft rollers in the stream. We caught numerous big Skip Jacks and one small Blackfin between the 4-8 mile range.

About 8 miles we came across an area with a bunch of flying fish. A short time later one of our rods we were trolling started screaming. As we picked up the rod we see a big Dolphin jumping in the distance. After about a 20min fight on 12lb test line we had a nice gaffer by the boat. After a carefully placed gaff shot we had the fish in the boat.

After that we trolled out to about 16 miles in search of a weedline. It was very clean out there and we never came across any weeds. We headed back in with a nice fin in the cooler. Total gas burn = 3 gallons
