Bad beginning to a decent day.
I remove the transducer bracket and decide i can Mcgyver up somthin and we head out.We spent an hour getting bait and not many at that.I head the boat 12 miles s/se to check a coral number and no luck. We head to another # 8 miles s and get into some short aj and ARS that all are over 22". I head w to what i am hoping to be my day maker and it is covered with ARS. Earl hooks up to a nurse shark and get his a** woopin for the day!I didnt get to fish a whole lot but did hook a ufo and lost it after a 5 min fight.My wife gets her fill of snapper fishing and tells me to find some grouper or take her to the hill! I head w again to a number i have not tried yet. Earl drops a live bait and gets a nice red grouper.Wife gets rocked up at least 3 times and then it shuts down.
I am about to call it when Earl hollers MAHI! We spend the next 30 min playin with chicken dolphin and having a blast.The days total was 1 good red grouper and 10 mahi. I dont think that was to bad for fishin half blind and the wife and i got some time together. Was a good day!
