Default Mahi Day

Logan is in from FSU and he and a friend of his wanted to go off shore so the weather said 1-2 ftrs today so I said no problem and we hit the launch about daybreak... We hit several spots and started out catching the endangered snappers, caught a couple keeper beeliners and a few shorts... The structure we were on was small and of course I had one other boat park next to me (no problem there cause they had little kids fishing that was cute) well all of a sudden here comes a Proline cuddy 20-22 ftr... he tried to edge in but decided to leave. Obviously he wasn't paying attention and ran over a free line that I had out... I yelled at him and then SNAP...he at least yelled sorry before hauling rear...



The 1-2's were rolling but as the day went on, it got bigger. Hit some more spots and we ran into a few grass areas. The small triple tails were stacked and aggressive... A fly rod and small fly would have been fun to play with em...


We had chickens all over the place... caught em on squid/cigs/artificials... We left em biting...Could have probably caught a cooler full... Beautiful colors on em too... Logan and Tyler never caught a Mahi so it was a 1st fer em... We went to another spot and caught a few more snaps and Logan caught a nice trigger (too bad we were in Fed waters)!!! He had never caught one of them either so he was happy!!! It had a broke off hook in its mouth so he got a helpful hand of removal!!!


We decided to call it a day (I was tired) and headed back... 1-2s ended up into 3-4's choppy and it took a while heading in!!!!


Did 98 miles and burnt 36 gal so not too bad a fuel burn with the conditions!!! 2.72 miles per gal!


Came home and blackened the beeliners and some mahi and everyone was PLEASED AS PIE!

I'm loving my KW...Still a cat boat fan but all the features and speed outta this sled is great!!! Logan's friend asked if we were at top speed (doing 25 in rough seas) and I just laughed and said if we were at top speed you would have no teeth left. When we got into the bay it was a little choppy but I managed 50 mph at 5300 rpms... I think I had a few more left in her if I tweeked her a bit...
