Default Spur 6/2

Made the run towards that little finger of blue water, dodged some good storms on the way out which scattered the grass and made trolling a nightmare. Finally around 1030 it started to slick off and the grass was forming lines. We had been seeing tuna busting all morning out away from the weed patches so we dropped the baits back a bit further and had a quick blow up but it missed the hooks. Around 11 it was still cloudy and we got bit on the islander/ballyhoo waaaay back. Fish dumped half + of a 50w and we fought it for 30+minutes. Had to hand the rod off and harness up once we figured out it was a grown one.
We never found the good mahi but picked away at chicken dolphin for a few minutes and made the run back about 130. The tuna barely fit in the fish bag so we didn’t want to risk spoiling any meat.

I am so jealous. We went bottom fishing about the same distance south as you guys but probably 40-50 miles west. We were in pea-green, or almost brown water the entire time. I would take a day like that in blue water over any other kind of fishing... Hands down.

it was a great surprise, we went hoping to get 1 or 2 dolphin. the poke bowls tonight were better than any grilled mahi! I'm not sure how often i'll push the single engine out that far but we had over a 1/4 tank still on return and it all worked out. I'll be boat shopping soon days like that are what we all live for. praying for the mississippi to slow down and the blue water to move back north.
