....is what I was hoping for today. My apologies for the misleading title, haha. Finally made it out in the Gulf in the yaks this morning. Enjoyed the calm water & some decent fishing for a few hours. Landed a monster spanish, a small king, & also pulled the hooks on a couple other smaller kings. Trolled two rods, both with naked cigs. Unfortunately my buddy Christian didn't land anything (beside a ridiculous amount of remoras), but he did get to fight a decent mahi in the 5-7 pound range. We got to watch it jump about a dozen times. I was trying to yell to him to stop high-sticking it when he had it close to the yak, but evidently he couldn't hear me, as he had his rod almost straight up in the air when he finally got it up next to him. It ended up throwing the hook on the last jump. Hoping that I get my first chance at a mahi on the next trip!
Tally for the Morning:
Me: Stud 26'' spanish & a dink 30'' king Christian: About a dozen remora
