Boca 5/12

Broke the inlet early knowing a hord of boats would be heading out of the tournament at Hillsboro.

Trolled to about 600ft and it was game on. No rime or reason, just dolphin everywhere in the area we went thru. Since we had not been out in a while, we did keep about 18 fish from 24 to 30 inches. Quit at 9:00 and had the boat cleaned by 10:30.

The few boats near us seemed hooked up also. Some scattered weed, and a few crab trap buoys..

Sometimes everything just clicks.
A buddy did catch a 45.5 lb dolphin Thursday out of Hillsboro.

Trying something different today, brined some fish and have smoked dolphin going on the smoker right now.

    Nice job.  You won't be disappointed with the smoked dolphin.  That's my go-to fish on the smoker.  If I ever end up keeping too much and need to freeze it, I'll smoke it first and then freeze it.  Keeps much better that way.

    6-800ft seemed to be the sweet spot last week
