Default Edge and beyond

Went out yesterday with a couple buddies with plans on catching a wahoo or two. It was a little rougher ride out than I had anticipated but thankfully laid down by noon. Schoolie dolphin are thick out there, took no time to catch our limit of those. We were even catching them on bare hooks, they were starving apparently. Seemed like most of the life was in close, we started dragging at 170' and pushed out to 300' without a bite. Started to head back in closer and we just happened to look back at the same time a big bull dolphin went airborne on the short flat. He somehow missed the hook, I think he struck in the direction of the boat and spit it before he got any tension on it. Anyways, not much else to report than that, caught one little dolphin on the troll on the way in in 150'. I think we should have spent more time in the 150-200' than deeper, as it seemed to have a lot more life. Lots of scattered grass with a few large patches here and there. Had the largest school of mahi I have ever seen under the boat yesterday, there were hundreds of them. Can't wait for this weather to clear out and go do it again, it's fishy out there. Shawn should have some cool gopro footage of us catching mahi. I think I am going to start taking a cane pole out there for them

Working on that vid now. Have too much footage and need to edit it down to something that looks good. New with the gopro so trying to make it look good. Those schools were awesome to see, let alone be able to catch fish on. Still cannot get over the bare hook catches. Want to go again tomorrow? lol
