Today, we has Mike and his son Nick from Vermont back with us for our second full day trip this week! Today brought much more luck than anticipated.. we caught a big ahi the other day together so we were targeting different fish. We started off the morning catching 4 mahi mahi……and even missed a few more using live bait on light tackle.
After the mahi were done biting we set off trolling. We somehow took a huge strike from a 120lb ahi!! This almost never happens in January! Nick was in the hot seat and did an excellent job angling his fish in a tough battle.
Both Mike and Nick managed to catch their largest fish ever with us this week! And to top it off on our way into the harbor a massive 110 lb stripe marlin gave us a run for our money! Mike was able to land one of the biggest striped marlin in a couple of years! Congratulations to all-…great day
