Default Calm water wahooooo!!

I started the day with a jig drop for some amberjack. I had one on and it got off. Then another and it got off. Then another for a little longer and it got off; what? I looked at the jig and bozo forgot to take off the hook guards!! Did a little better after that with a couple of small amberjack and an almaco jack. There was an 8-10 foot hammerhead shark making some quick moves on the surface. It was fast. There were divers just getting out of the water not far away; not for meeee!!

Enough diversion, on to the blue water. I started trolling at the Edge and kept heading south. I came on a few other boats fishing a weed line. I picked up the first wahoo on an Islander with ballyhoo. Trolled around for a while picking weeds and then worked over to the 131 then on back to the Edge. I picked up another wahoo in 300 feet of water just past where the weeds ended.

Beautiful day on the water.

Bob

Bob if you ever need someone to go with let me know. I am crazy about the blue water and Wahoo. Experienced lifeguard, paramedic and offshore sailor. However, little knowledge of fishing. PM me if you ever need a camera man or any other help.

Default Weedline

No secret, the weeds start just after the Edge; it runs East to West so you can't miss it. Some is heavy scattered weeds; other is more loosely formed. It wasn't really a good line as much as lots of weeds. I met some folks at the ramp that had 3 dolphin. The water was 74.8 degrees and fairly blue. Flying fish both large and small and breaking bonita. Diving birds. Good luck. I just finished cleaning my two wahoo; one was 26lbs and the other was 32lbs. Lots of meat. I do like to go solo especially on nice calm days. If there isn't much traffic I set the autopilot and sit in the beanbag and watch the lures; so peaceful. Sort of Old Man and the Sea relived. Whenever I have someone on board I am more driven to find fish; without anyone I can just doodle along and start when I get up and fish till after dark if I feel like it. Good luck all.
