ponce inlet 4-22 sail / mahi / blackfin
Hit the inlet nice and early to some rather bumpy seas with my brother Scott. Took about 3 hours heading straight into the wind, to get out far enough to drop a line. first hit was a bonita and then a small sailfish on purple and black with trolling weight in about 180ft.. Clean release on the sail. Trolled east until about 210 and picked up a nice lifter dolphin, followed by a 13 lb. black fin, both into the ice box. We continued east into the bumpy seas until about 240 where we picked up another dolphin. a little bigger this time. He had some company, but with the bumpy seas and wind I couldn't stay off the wheel long enough to get more than one shot with the spinner and he was gone.
Found a beautiful color change, rip line in about 220 and nothing. We thought for sure this was the spot!
Blind trolled toward the inlet and hit a decent 16 lb. black fin in about 145.
Both tuna came on pink and orange and purple and black with trolling weight took the rest of the action.
finished the day with 2 blackfin and 2 phins on ice.
Properly bled and the blackfin produce some tasty sushi!!!!!!
