Another day fishing in Boynton Beach Fl aboard "My Office" . We started out of Boynton Inlet around 6:45am and the ground swell in front of the inlet made us think it was going to be a rough and long day. We ran out to about 135ft , where I saw a nice color change and "Nervous water" on the blue water side. The Garmin was showing bait under the boat for about 30 ft down . We knew there would be fish there. We immediately put the planers down ,just for them to both trip with kings on them a minute later . We reset the spread and turned back down the edge, when we came back to the bait filled area ,the centerline short went off, we had a 10-15 pd dolphin on the artificial . After a short fight , we got her in and circled back to the same spot to have another cow hit the naked bead chain ballyhoo on the rigger. This one only weighed in at 10 pd. but still a nice fish . Then, quickly all the boats in the area showed up to the same spot we were at. People were complaining on the radio, so we decided to let them have their fun and head north. The ocean finally started to calm down at around 8:30 . We trolled through the scattered weed , cleaning weeded up lines for about 45 minutes. Then I decided to go a little deeper , out of the weed to hopefully pull up a wahoo or more dolphin . When we reached 225 feet at 9:00, the short planer went off. After checking the depth and hearing the scream , I knew it was a wahoo . We sped up the boat to really set the hook in. Once we knew he was on we inch by inch brought him in on the Avet 30. Then the other Planer went off with a schoolie dolphin on. After dancing around the deck we got the lil guy in with no trouble. After a couple minutes of reeling in, we got to the planer which was on a wind on Joe (the owner of "My Office" )made. Thankfully this allowed us to real in the 100ft leader and bring the fish right up to the boat. With a quick gaff and a calm fish , next thing you know we have a 42 Pd wahoo laying on the deck!
Another great day fishing and in by 10:30 for lunch.
Fishing the Boynton Beach area my whole life , as soon as I think I know what I'm doing ,the fish tell me otherwise!
