My cousin Karl (kbi_n_maryetta) finally was able to make it down to do some fishing. The seas looked good so my buddyDon invited us to go out and do a little jigging at the Antares and possibly a bit of trolling depending on the weather. Left Bahia Mara around 7am and proceeded south. The ride out was nice and once we arrived started marking fish all over the place. Had a big school of bonito running around the boat but not a bite, nothing. We jigged, droped live and dead bait. Seas began to subside so we decided to troll for a bit. We swung out the outriggers, strap down the reels, and started preparing for our run. The bird went out first, then the rest. We ended up with 7 rods out at one point just to try to increase our odds. Ended up with one small dolphin for all our efforts. But most importantly, it was a beautiful morning for three guys that were in some serious need of some aqua therapy.

A couple of pictures from the trip....









Man, what a beautiful morning it was.....

Corpsman,



Not a problem. We had the same thing happen a few weeks ago. We were wondering if it turned out to be a productive day for you guys.

Yo- Thanks again for helping us out. Indeed you saved the trip! We were told by mechanic that is was a hydraulic packin seal problem, probably $200-500 to fix. But you came in and less than 1 minute you fixed it. Boy we were thanking you the rest of the day. We were hoping Karma would bring you guys some biggins. At work now, but full report later.
