Great report. Why did you pass up the sails? I only ask because I am in Maryland and it is 35 degrees out. We get to think of fishing or go and freeze for 1-20 pound stripers. Good work on the mahi!
We passed on the sails because not really having a lot of experience fishing for them, we didn't want to pass on a good mahi bite. BTW, I live in Alexandria VA and work in DC so I know what you mean brother. My friend I grew up with moved tto Pompano Beach a year ago and bought a boat 6 months and I try to make it down once a month to fish. All in all it is not too expensive. Airfare in aroun $200 and I have a place to stay and we spend maybe a $100 each on gas ice and bait. Down there, 90% of your fishing is within sight of the shore so you dont burn a lot of gas.
