Houndfish

Saturday morning, the 28th of September, we took a group
fishing. It was Bess and the boys. The guys were clients
of Bess, they caught a Skipjack Tuna, a Kingfish,
and this Houndfish. Fishing charters produce all kinds of
fish, it’s a new adventure every day. The fishing was a
little slow Saturday but the day was beautiful and everyone had fun!

Dolphin, Wahoo and Tuna

Wednesday, October 2nd we took a group sport fishing and had a lot of fun. We went offshore and found a weed line with some debris in it. Just south of a floater we picked up a Wahoo and kept working the area until they stopped biting. They were smaller Wahoo, but ummm so tasty! The Dolphin and Tuna were caught next to weed patches and 20131002_125311 (2)along the weed line.

Birthday Wahoo

20131019_104623 (2)Saturday October 19th, we took Laura and Jim fishing in the morning. It was a birthday gift from Laura. We went offshore looking for Dolphin, Tuna and Wahoo, but couldn’t find a fish. I decided to go back to the reef and look for Kingfish. Before we got there I asked Charlie to put out an additional line, a lure that I put together, on a planer, not to deep. We started heading north, outside the reef, toward the inlet. It didn’t take long. All of a sudden we had this strike on my lure. It tripped the planer, but before Charlie could reset the planer, he was on. When he started ripping line off the reel like it was nothing, then the rod started whipping up and down from the fishes head shaking, we new it was a Wahoo. The fight was on. Jim did a great job reeling in the fish. When the fish was close, I put one engine in gear, straightened the wheel, ran down the ladder and gaffed the fish as soon as Charlie had him next to the boat. Game Over! Happy birthday Jim!
