Paradise Outfitters Captain Bill Delabar Jan 11 & 12 We just arrived back in Austin but here’s a short report with pics to follow tomorrow. We canceled last week due to high seas but managed to get two days offshore this week. Gimmedeal, Safisher, Drifter, Johss, and Wayne. Day one – rough seas, no blue water at the lump and no fish. We headed further out until we found better water. We hook up with a small YFT and a Mako takes him right at the boat! We rig up with wire and the fight is on! Took about 45 minutes but the Mako was ours. We estimate it weighed about 125 pounds. At least we didn’t get skunked! Day two – seas were calm and the lump had blue/green water. It didn’t take long for the bite to get hot! Gimmedeal – 115 lb YFT Drifter – 105 lb YFT Wayne – 80 lb YFT Wayne caught 3 Amberjack to about 70 lbs and I caught a fourth. Nick fought a fish for over 30 minutes that turned out to be a huge shark – well over 100lbs. After that, we kept catching Bonito and sharks so we left in search of Wahoo. We’re trolling and Wayne gets a hookup. As we’re reeling in the other two lines, Gimmedeal gets hit while bringing in the lure and the fight is on! Turned out to be a 75lb Wahoo. 3 YFT 4 Amberjack 2 Wahoo 1 Mako It was a good trip! We enjoyed fishing with Bill and hope to charter with him again.
