Gaffers In The Deep

I headed south this morning, and promised my group some wahoo action, but I was wrong.

After our wahoo flurry yesterday morning, I knew with the slick calm weather that we would be able to find some fish and do well. After pounding the break, with no luck, I headed on off to the deep in hopes of finding an edge. I found it in 250 fathoms, and we landed three gaffers out of a half dozen bites. I jogged back inshore around lunchtime to work up the break and hopefully find the striped ones. We finally hooked a nice wahoo on a shortrigger, but he managed to get away, as our luck would have it. We did have some epic action with albacores and black tip sharks near the end of the day, but it wasn’t what I had hoped for. Still one of the nicest days offshore this year. Thanks Jason, and I’ll see you again soon!
