Although Lynn's husband did get in the picture, he isn't as enthused about fishing as Lynn and her two boys but that's okay, their enthusiasm more then made up for his lack of in that area.
They tried the hump but the tunas were not biting well so Dave brought them back to the reef where the yellowtail snapper bite was on fire and they were able to catch there limit in a couple hours. This is Lynn's second trip with us and we look forward to many more.
Jack, Kate and Catherine were our guest today as we headed out early to avoid some of the boat traffic I was anticipating on this holiday weekend. As it turned out that traffic was light, probably due to the higher winds today and early morning rain.
Took a while to get our tunas, the sharks were aggressive and we had a bit of bad luck pulling the hooks on at least five blackfins before finally catching our ten. After leaving the hump we got lucky with some debris and weed patches that held a dozen or so mahi, most of which were legal.
Our folks will be back and we had an enjoyable time fishing with them.
We started slow at the Islamorada hump, not catching a tuna and I almost headed back to the reef to catch snapper but then I saw some birds. A long way off and moving fast, I was pretty sure they were tunas, we got rewarded when we finally got there catching a triple on the first pass. I found other birds and we kept catching till we had our limit then headed in to the reef where the sharks ate two nice mutton snappers to finish off our day.
