This morning the wind was blowing hard and the seas were large. We decided that it would be best to get a late start for our three-quarter day, so we departed from Robbie’s around noon. The forecast called for subsiding winds and they finally got it right! We heard from a dock-mate that there were some nice size Tuna biting about 10-15 miles offshore so we headed straight out. Finally after about 45 minutes, we reached about 600 feet of water and found some bird activity and piece of floating debris. The troll was on. We started out dragging some small feathers, a blue and white jet head, as well as some different small to medium sized lures. Before we knew it we had a nice Mahi-mahi on and it was game on! We spent most of the day trolling between 600′ to 660′ of water. Found most of our fish under birds and a couple nice gaffers in some rips. By 3:30PM we had a few Mahi in the box! The seas had calmed down and the wind was no more. We continued our hunt till about 5:30PM before time was up and we had to head home.
