Plan A was better!

Plan A for the weekend was to go out to 90Ft and find Mahi and yesterday we made it. We dropped lines at 7:00 AM and caught 8 Mahi (lost 3 or 4 right at the boat). We were trolling medium ballyhoo on Jr. Islanders, Sailures, and squid rigs behind a bird. They hit blue/white, pink/white, black, dolphin pattern, black/orange, & pink.

To top it off we caught a nice sailfish (blue/white Jr. Islander). Took about 45 minutes to land but it was a blast. Fish was released in good shape. Second citation in two days and my first sailfish. :D

Can't wait for next weekend!
