Today was Day 2 of the Hang Em High Meat Tournament. We stuck it out in Cat Island today and pounded it out hoping for something to come together and it did, all in 45 minutes of fishing. We put 5 wahoo in the box (unfortunately all wee hoos), and a couple mahi, one of which went 34.5 lbs and for now is holding first place in the dolphin category. Final day tomorrow.
Today was day 1 of the Hang Em High meat tournament in Hawks Nest Marina Cat Island. We had flat calm seas so we made the run to San Salvador hoping to cash in on a big wahoo. Fishing was super slow overall and even worse for us. We caught half a tuna and that was our day.
Today we right right back to it wahoo fishing. The morning was dead! Very slow fishing and not really any life at all. We worked the ridge and the hump hard!
In the afternoon the blackfins started popping up on the surface here and there. Finally we came tight on two wahoo. We pulled the Hook on one but landed the other one which was a nice 60-70 pound wahoo. Shortly after we hooked into and landed a nice 35 pound yellowfin and called it a day shortly after. Flat calm day, beautiful and sunny!
Today the fishing turned on great. We boated 7 wahoos and had some tough luck on a few others but fun day. Biggest going 65 pounds. Even a bonus yellowfin in the mix. Fun day with lots of action! 78.5 degree pretty blue water! Another day in paradise on Exile65.
Another day in paradise here. The fishing has been tough but we continue to pick away here and there. 1 50# wahoo and 3 mahi today. Not a whole lot to it but still looking hard for the 100 pounder that San Salvador produces!
Only time for a Quick Report. Beautiful day on the water today but slower fishing. Barracudas were epic, haha. Tearing up baits and monsters at that. Lost a couple of tuna due to sharks and a solid wahoo at the end of the day. All was looking great and then shared! Ouch. Tough one today.
We got back out in the beautiful blue 79 degree water here in San Salvador Bahamas with a stiff SW wind all day. It was a slow start and we tried to grab a few Blackfin tuna but were only able to get one in the boat. Shortly after we had a white marlin bite that didn’t connect and the mid day doldrums started to set in. Joe went inside to make lunch and wham! That right flat line with a naked mullet went screaming. It was the right one. The boys out in work getting the fish to the boat and Joe wired it to the gaff shot. Over the rail came a nice 80 pound wahoo!!!! Why you come to San Salvador. The bite was slow overall today with just some barracudas keeping things honest, but thank goodness for a nice wahoo! Looking for an epic day tomorrow!
