If you want to cast lures cast something that goes fast through the water like a shimano colt sniper or a duo malice . If you want to use bait you can’t go wrong with cut squid for mahi .Thanks for this and all the info you provide.
What would you suggest to have at the ready if chicken dolphin were to show up. Thanks!
yup, but apparently because of weather which was real nasty monday morning it sailed last night near 8pm, capt. matt wanted to be fishing by sunup i heard so should be back in morningI reckon the first deep drop trip sailed or Captain Matt would have posted the cancellation.
Hope they have a safe trip and lot's of fish!!!
Jigging was a workout. Got away with 30lb braid and 400-500g jigs up until about 1130. We were on anchor the whole trip and the current started to really rip after noon. 20lb braid and 540g jigs still had way too much scope the second half of the day. It might have been better fishing off the back of the boat when it picked up. Still got some decent fish and had a great time though.
which Vmc ones have you been using?Yep that’s me. Those were 7/0 johnny jig assist hooks I still had left over from when I first learned to tie my own. Was a little worried how they would hold up to the fish but didn’t have any issues. I had 3/0, 5/0, 6/0, 7/0 with me. All the new ones I’ve been tying are VMC though.
