    There was a lot of ups and downs the past week. The weather cooperated for the most part, the fish cooperated most of the time, and it looks like we MAY be getting into a normal weather pattern. On Wed. I took out the Cordell crew from Georgia. They were all Vietnam Veterans and although I didn't ask I am sure they had some good stories from some of the looks of the tatoos. Unfortunately, we had a very slow day. We hit all of our usual spots that produce at least a couple of fish here and there most days, but on this day we had nothing, except for one cuda. On Thursday I had the K. Krogstad group. The winds were down and it looked like it was going to be a great day. We easily got our limits of A.J.'s and then switched over to grouper fishing. This particular spot usually holds grouper but all we could catch were big snapper around the 15lb. mark. We didn't want to drop again and catch more snapper so we made a call to try for something else, right around this time the wind picked up to about 20 knots which shutdown our chances of running further offshore. We decided to troll an area that usually produces a lot of wahoo and a few tuna. The conditions were right the only thing we were missing was the fish. On Fri. Capt. Bob had the Nicholson crew from Texas. I had discussed with him where we fished on Thurs. and what the conditions looked like that afternoon. It seemed as though the fish should be there and we both agreed it they would show up anyday. I guess they showed up overnight. So Capt. Bob went straight there and sure enough as soon as he put the lines out he had his first wahoo on and ended up catching 5 Wahoo, (one came in with just a head) had a lot of on/off wahoo, 2 blackfin, and 1 dolphin. On Saturday Capt. Josh took out the Atwal crew from New Orleans. They ended their day with 4 wahoo, 2 blackfin, and 1 cobia, and once again a lot of missed wahoo. Capt. Bob had the Benson crew who fishes with us at least once a year and they decided to run long and chase tuna. As soon as they got the lines out they got their first Yellowfin Tuna on, got him in the boat, about a 40lber. Then it went slow. Next Stop, Capt. Bob put the baits out and soon afterward got a blue on. He said the blue put on a great show in the beginning and has never seen a fish go from the back of the boat up past the front of the boat and 200 yards away so fast. Definitely had a case of the angler and fish facing different directions. About 15 minutes into the fight the fish sounded and the real fight began. As they were inching him up, the rod broke. I am sure a few words were flying around, the fish was in view, so Capt. Bob handlined the fish up to the leader and Congrats. was given to the angler. On Sunday we had to cancel due to weather but Capt. Josh is out today and will be out tomorrow with the McDeids from Minnesota. Will report on how they do. Conditions are starting to get right, the fish are showing up in all the places they are supposed to be so we look forward to some great fishing and calm seas thru the next several months. We have dates open to fish this month and next. The mahi-mahi bite should really start to get crazy here in the next week or so, mix that with tuna and wahoo, the occasional marlin and you've had a fishing trip to remember. Give us a call and we wil get you out fishing.
