Default Celtic first Bluewater trip this year!!

Took a bunch of my duck hunting buddies from Arkansas to Petronius Saturday....It was rough as most of you know and the tuna bite was slow there....We deciced to troll to the Steps....about 3/4 of the way there we had a knockdown... it was this Wahoo.....Weight about 40#





Trolled around the steps for a while with no results...only saw a good size Dolphin free jumping but couldn't get his attention.

Turned N/E toward the Elbow and had gone only about 4-5 miles when a billfish csme into the spread... She made a couple of passes through the spread...then started billing on the mousetrap lure...It was a Blue and White Islander with a Blue head, and a rigged ballyhoo.

John dropped the bait back to her two or three times before hooking her up.

Didn't get any great pics of her except with one of those throw away cameras...(pics not developed yet)

We did get her to the boat and had hands on the leader...She got under the boat and the leader got into the trim tab before we got a chance to get a tag in..



Marlin jumping behind the boat^^^^^^^



Larry Huckabee the Marlin angler, Dennis Noel, Wahoo killer, and John Godwin #1 cockpit man!!

Thanks John for making sure those guys had a good time!!!
