October Sail

The day started out very windy, but was surprisingly nicer offshore, and got better as the day went on.

We caught a few small bailers first thing, and pretty much spent the rest of our time fishing on a color change, and hoping for some bigger bites. Things heated up when we hooked and landed a pair of 35 pound wahoos! We had a couple other wahoo bites that we missed as well. We missed a sailfish, and a little later hooked and landed one…a nice one. That fish put on an excellent show all around the boat with an exciting series of jumps. A couple of boats fished up the line looking for some tuna, but didn’t have much luck. The current was pretty slack down where I was, and the bottom fish bit for a couple of guys that tried that. Thanks Omar and the gang for a nice trip. See you in the spring!
