With a couple of exceptions every shark was huge tonight but that didn't stop young Cole or his brother from fighting them to the boat. The extreme outgoing tide didn't help either but we managed to catch eight or nine by the end of the trip along with one screamer that went through the leader. Good times , good family and a beautiful evening on the water.
Kathy enjoyed watching her husband Bob catch all the fish today, different than yesterday when Shawna did all the catching.
Tunas bit at the big hump again and once we had our limit and since Bob wanted to try for a sailfish we came back in to the reef edge, caught our bait plus a few snapper and spent the last few hours watching the ballyhoo swim. I think we had a sail up as he spooked the baits but never ate. Right color and place but never got a real good look at him.
Bob and Kathy will be back again soon and we look forward to treating Bob to a yellowtail snapper outing.
Lots of big sharks along with one large barracuda made for a "not to be forgotten" evening out in whale harbor channel for Josh and Stevie. Being from Arizona and their first time in the keys this was a special event for the both of them and Stevie said the highlight of their visit.
So glad we could make that happen for them on a beautiful evening on the water.
Fortunately Dan's wife Shawna was with us to do the heavy lifting because Dan was having a difficult time with his balance and the boat motion. A deer hunter from Michigan, Dan never really felt comfortable standing while the boat was moving and although he caught some fish, he let Shawna do most of the catching.
The tunas bit well on the big hump and Shawna caught the AJ on the little hump which really tested her stamina. All in all a very successful short day with plenty of fish for these folks to take home with them. See you in two years kids!
