Default Mahi Mahi and Sailfish on GCKFA Tournament 28 April 12

Barrett and I decided to fish offshore for the tournament and it paid off big time. We had a plan to get some kings and spanish and concentrate on those for the tournament. We launched about 520am and by 630 we both had a double hook up on Mahi Mahi. We were pumped and joked about now we need a sailfish and black fin tuna and laughed. In about 30 min Barrett started screaming at me that he had a sail on and I couldn't believe my eyes, the sail was jumping out of the water. He landed him on a homemade king rig. We took some photos and trolled him for about 5 min and he swam off. Awesome sight. I ended up with 6 Mahi Mahi and 2 spanish. Barrett landed a king, mahi mahi and a spanish. Epic day. I made a video of the last Mahi. Enjoy

Nothing fancy. Just a penn fierce 5000. It does the job though. No issues with it yet.

Nice job! Great fish! I got out there around 10:00 and got nothing. Should have come earlier.
