Default Awesome Thursday Kings,Mahi,Snapper,BoBo,Trig

Went out Thursday later than I wanted @6:00am. We'll call launch point Bayview Park into Bayou Texar. Got a couple Kings and Bonita on troll while going to the spot. Once on spot I got a Trigger and 5-10 Snapper, till I was tired of catching snapper(an old friend said it's like catching Pin fish only bigger) which is pretty accurate. Then worked my way back with a Stretch25 and only one big hit. Got to the second sand bar and nailed a nice Mahi on a duster rig. What an acrobat! He was all over the sky. Makes it way more exciting. I've got a video of the landings, still working on my action cam setup.

-The Mahi is the one fish I kept.

- The adventure island has a big learning curve with configuration and maneuvering, but once you got your system down it's amazing.

I like your setup. I need to get busy on my catamaran so I can have something to get me out on the water to fish. I think I'll be able to get it going without getting turned upsidedown. I really want to be able to fish the gulf side.

Very nice mahi mahi. Awesome your able to launch from Bayou Texar to go out the pass and offshore. The AI must really move. I want to get one someday to do more longer range offshore trips (10 miles). One problem I see with that though is that your buddies can't make it unless they have AI's too.

It's better than a boat.

That's awesome - and sad all at once. Sad that someone from Cleveland will believe it.
