Boca Raton 29 May 2021
Three of us launched from the beach around 4:45 am through a small surf at Spanish Trails park. Sabiki Goggle eye fishing was horrible for me, but one of my friends had better luck with his crappie jig and had over a dozen. He gave me three before we headed out. On the way out my two buddies and I all hooked up right after sunrise. My friends each caught a nice jumbo Blackfin Tuna, and I got a king.
My other two baits produced a snag in the Hobie Outback rudder (I hate this rudder -- never had a problem with the Pro Angler) and a bit off most likely by a shark. All out of bait I headed out for a jigging session. There were some weedlines and it looked fishy. Most of my action occurred in 270ft of water.
The current was pretty strong and by 10:30 it was time to head back. I trolled a yozuri straight in to the beach first to get out of the current before heading Sth back to the launch. I made it back to a very crowded Memorial weekend Beach. One of my friends lost a big Mahi because he did not have his gaff which he lost on the Tuna. The other friend did not have any more luck for the day but saw a nearby boat catch a 20lb+ gaffer. I was stoked to have fresh tuna for sushi, Ceviche, Blackening, Searing, and tuna spreads.
