Fished MBGFC ladies tourney on the "fish eye" with a buddy his wife and another couple. Left Saturday 8/1 around 0300 from OB arrived at Nakika at 0730. Fished the rig nothing. Moved south to a decent weedline and proceeded to catch 20+ 10-15lb dolphins also caught a small wahoo turned out to be 18lb, 2 more pounds and we would have won 3rd place wahoo. Fished the nearby Danny Atkins nothing, spent the night at that rig.

Got up Saturday to scattered grass which made trolling tough, moved about 10 miles SE and found a monster weedline with a good color change in between the Atkins and the 8506. Caught several more medium sized Dolphins and then landed a sailfish on a 30lb outfit. Kept trolling that line until we had to run back to make the weigh in. Ended up not having any fish over 20 lbs but we did win top small boat with the sail and the girls won a bunch of goodies. Great trip overall, weather was decent, good company and a lot of meat.

On a side note, on the way in the water was terrible green but we saw dozens of schools hard tails, bonitos and some blackfins around the Steps/Petronius so bait is it out there.
