Pre-Irene

This will probably be the last report till after the storm is past, but it’s a good one!

The weather was sorta marginal today, not too rough, but a bouncy, squally southeaster. What grass was offshore was streaked out and difficult to fish, plus the dolphin were scattered and hard to find. We did however find two schools and managed to catch 35 between the two bunches. I decided to spend more time looking for a bigger bite after that, and it paid off. We caught two wahoos and a doubleheader of sailfish. We also caught a couple of jumbo albacore and released a barracuda to wind up the day. Congratulations Mark and Peter on your sailfish releases, and to Simon for a great wahoo catch on your first offshore trip!
