8/28 Weedline

Ran out with Maureen, Joe, and Jay on the “Trade In” today looking for marlin. We ran towards the Spencer and ran until we found the edge of green to blue water in 500 fathoms of the Spencer. We got on the troll around 6:30 am and caught a 20# yellowfin right away. We kept working down the edge SW and came across plenty of life between pilot whales and dolphins but no bites. Once we got a few miles below the Spencer we found a weedline and it was game on with Mahi. We caught 23 mahi before it settled down and we got back to trolling.  All of the mahi were better than our average chicken dolphin which was nice to see, and our biggest was a 22# bull.  We had a cover up on longfins on the troll after the dolphin melee and lost em which was a major bummer. No billfish bites, but plenty of action all day.
