Fished with my dad, Capt. Adam (Sniperpeeps), and our friend Harry, on Harry's 31 Jupiter, "Mac Attack". Lines in north of the Elbow in really good looking water, hoping to snag a little Wahoo action. We got bitten off, baits cut off right behind the hook, and just plain skunked by several hooters! We had a good fish crush a flat line, get hooked, and just pulled off. It was a no Wahoo day... We did go through at least a dozen or more Ballyhoo, with nothing to show for it!

Headed SSW into deeper water and found several big schools of BFT, schoolie YFT, Bonita, and Skipjack Tuna. The fish were spooky, but we picked off a few really nice Skippies, and lost some others. At one point we had a pretty good triple hook up that resulted in a fish being bitten off, one hook pull, and one in the boat. Then the Tuna disappeared.

Continued fishing really pretty water and doubled up on some beautiful, yet smallish, Mahi. Continued on for the rest of the day with nothing else to show for it. Didn't take any pics.

Fishing should get better, and the water to the SW is beautiful! No grass to speak of aside from a little scattered here and there. If we have a good day this week coming up, Adam and I are going back out that way, except we will start further south and work towards the rigs. We shall see!

Sounds like lots of action to say the least. Better to have some excitement and not a lot to bring home than a dead day out there. good luck next time.
