White Marlin Cudjoe Key Pictures 6/23/16

Left the dock at 6:30 AM with a gentle SE breeze and headed offshore with two clients from Tennessee.
Worked a rip at 750'. NADA
Worked the wall and beyond to 2500'+. NADA
Scattered weed everywhere but no patches, no birds, no debris. Void of any signs of life.
Ran back to 850'. Trolled NE. At 780' had a good fish on for 20 seconds. Gone As we were re-rigging circiling back same fish commited sucide on other rigger.
Slow out there but I figured with the SE breeze we would find dolphin.
We did not.

    Funny, the **** mahi have been evasive.
    Last 2 trips offshore I had to struggle to find mahi, caught a white 2 weeks ago and a blue a week ago.
    To say the least both saved the day.
    Super job.

    I'd rather catch and release a marlin and eat a ribeye at the house with a clean boat then clean a trash can full of schoolies. Nice fish and pics.

    I think if anybody could have found dolphin it would have been you Bill. You still made a client happy under bad circumstances! Your NC friends that had anchor problems at Bahia Honda several years ago caught lots of YT, grouper, and JJ caught a goliath grouper. Went to other side of Gulf Stream with no action ourselves except one knockdown on the last line out when we were getting ready to come in. By that time it was: "forget it".
