Hi All!
Big game continues to sizzle! Was out at the 267 FB and bagged a nice 17.5 lb do do & a 28 lb yellowfin. A big 10 foot hammerhead wanted my tuna and circled me for a while….very cool! A fun way to end the day. Let's GO!

Man, I haven't found a Dorado in two almost years in Texas. I guess I need to head further out than 25 miles and get to deeper water though I've found them 5 miles offshore before..
Congrats on the sweet Mahi and Tuna AND on NOT paying the Tax Man. :P

Thanks, Rev. The mahis are close here...within 7 mile. Heck 25 miles out, we'd be fishing Catalina island...finding the a paddy with someone home & divine intervention definitely pays off! I've been praying for wahoo these days too :D

I want to catch a hammerhead! Maybe try the surf one day. Would be too intimidated on the ski. :lol: Strictly C.P.R.

Hey Mike, Hammerheads are everywhere these day & I think you're just crazy enough to catch one on your ski :lol:

Btw, I'll never forget that beautiful leopard you caught awhile back.

I would love to catch one on the ski, just would need something long enough to take out or cut the hook! Don't want those teeth anywhere near me. :lol: Yes, leopard are a beautiful breed of sharks. Try to C.P.R. as much as possible unless I know it's not going to live or if family or friends want the meat (that with any fish in general). I will text you later, I think we are thinking of heading out this week. I will let you know of the day. :D

Man, I envy you guys the Dorado. They're kinda rare for us, but sometimes we find a small cache of em. Always hoping. And for snappers with some size in state waters. LOL
