Finally our first dolphin!

went out 1000 nothing but scattered weeds.   Came back to 600 where it was thicker and trolled.  Got a 24”er and got sick as I bent down to put it in the box.  Ohh well, forgot my meclizine  😁.   Was my wife’s 1st fishing trip!!!  Was surprised that the dolphin had good initial bite, jump, and 10 seconds of fight, then felt like I was dragging dead weight the rest of the way

    Nice catch for your wife's fishing trip, nicely done!!!!  Other than she will expect you to always come back with fish now LOL.

    Nice job.  Put them in the box quickly and get your head back up as soon as you can.  Keep looking out too.  Best solution is to keep a fish at the end of the line!

    Good Dill, great first trip for wife.
    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you

    She had fun, but she typically gets sicker then me and doesn't eat fish!, more for me :)  Don't think I have to worry about her tagging along unless weather report calls for glass... My only trouble is getting the boat when she wants to go to the sandbar...   Thanks for the warm welcome...

    Went out Sunday again with my dad for some bottom fishing...  Got the usual Bonita, Jack, etc...  Bonita took the full brunt of the tax man on the way back in...  :/
