Pompano Bch  - 30 Nov 2018  - I Launched off around 5am and found Goggle-eye bait fishing slow, but was able to find runners for the live well off structure out deeper.  On the way out , I landed one short King Mackerel, and had a larger one pull off while trolling a yozuri crystal minnow in about 40ft of water.  First live bait out found a Barracuda, as did the next few baits.

Vertical jigging was slow.  I did not find the medium sized Blackfin Tuna that have been the main take home of other recent kayak fishing trips.   Instead I found a few Little Tunny, and overall slow fishing.

That was until my flatline live bait rod doubled over and the reel started screaming.  It was a classic Sailfish strike, but to my pleasure, A nice Mahi Mahi was on the other end of the line.   

The bull put up a good fight, harder than some sailfish I have taken of double the weight.  After a worthy battle, the trip was made with a Mahi Mahi for dinner !
