Default Wahoo and Scamp 04/25

Ginzu and I headed out yesterday with plans on finding some pelagics after seeing multiple reports of yellowfin, wahoo and dolphin here lately.

We made bait at the mass in case we found something to live chum or grab some scamp on the way in.

It was slick calm and our initial plan was to head south, put lines in at the edge and work our way towards the elbow. After seeing tons of grass and flyers near the beach on my charters here lately I figured we'd find some but no. Thinking that NW wind blew ever out we kept on going towards the nipple running and gunning until we found something. Finally we found some small tuna busting around the nipple and put lines in. I don't have outriggers but manage to still run 5 lines. Before I could get my fifth line in the blue and white islander gets smashed and Rob is on the reel, after some excitement on the gaffwe boat this nice wahoo!

We worked the area for awhile with no other bites and keep heading SE about 10-12 miles from the spur we found some beautiful water and a little rip with some scattered grass and debris. I thought for sure We would pick up something here but no luck. We trolled back to the nipple with nothing to show for our efforts so we decided to make a stop on the way in to get our limit of scamp and we had them in about 45 minutes and called it a day!

It was. We didn't roll into the pass until 1800. We were 33nm from the pass when we decided to head up the hill. The twin vee eats up the shop and I was still doing my usual 25-26kts. By the time we got into the washing machine the pass was I did have to slow a bit, beam seas can be tricky in a cat at times.

I bet you're gonna get outriggers on it now? That's a great setup and those twin vees do handle nicely in chop.

That's how I started and they'll do just fine. AFTCO roller trollers off the transom cleats will help the xraps and braids run deeper and stay clearer of your flats. Outriggers are great but can also be a pain in the #%$ sometimes. If you decide to get any, don't be lured in by the cheap tacos.
