It's a billfish vacation.
Released a white last Sunday on the 500.
Fished the 8th and started at the 450 over in the deep looking for some grass and found none.Hooked and released ~ 200# blue on the 450 in 1000 fathoms.Ran down to the 350 on a break and ended up with 17 dolphin.Mixture of gaffers and slingers.
Sat. the 9th started on the 350 in scattered grass.Saw some birds working offshore and trolled over and caught two blackfin and two bonita.Went back to the grass line that started shaping up right nice.Not many fish on it.Caught only seven gaffers and at 1230 caught a 25# gaffer on the 350 in 100 fathoms.Then hooked what I thought was a huge dolphin because it was burning line off my TLD25.Seconds later a nice ~300# blue is tailwalking across the water.Chased him for 40 minutes with at least a half dozen good jumps.Got hold of the leader the second time and leaded broke.I have 30# line and a 60# leader.Bummer was no camera.
So far vacation released 1 white,2 blues.
Kept 30 dolphin,two blackfin ,two bonita and flounder fished the inlet one day catching 15-20 flounder with only 4 keepers.
Next week looking nice to get out again I hope.Resting up today.
