Beautiful day on the water. Fairly calm seas and light breeze. My son and I went out to a little south of the nipple and trolled south at dawn. There wasn't much happening and the water was all green. Got a few hits but no hook ups. We were looking for wahoo and trolled down toward the edge in 200-300 feet of water. We tried naked and sea witched ballyhoo, plugs, black Bart's, ballyhood banchee's, yozuri Bonita's, ilanders,etc. We had gone a little deeper and saw some tuna breaking over some bait but it all disappeared by the time we got turned around. Twenty minutes later in 600 feet headed back to shallower water we got hit with a screamer. He took a good 200-300 yards off a new Avet 2 speed and Andrew, my son, took about 25 minutes to horse him in. It was very exciting as he took off on several long runs. I thought initially it had to be a big wahoo the way he ran. The lure he took was a yozuri bonita dolphin colored. Had a few other strikes but couldn't get hooked. As my wife says it was one expensive fish but it was all worth it. It made our day. We were back at 4 and eating seared tuna at 7. We are novices but we are "hooked". Fish weighed 45 and was perfect eating.
