I ran the 48 Ocean Yacht, Justified, yesterday for a 22 hour charter. We had calm seas all day and got out to the Lindy at first light and BAM, we had our first tuna on and brought it in the boat. Decent 50 pound fish. That got me pretty excited and we pounded the area and had pilot whales in the canyon all day, but absolutely no action. We tried finding Mahi on the pot balls with no luck and found a few vacant weedlines. The scattered grass was still keeping us busy clearing then off of the lines.
With the extremely slow fishing we made a run inside to 30 fathoms where a friend of mine caught some dolphin on a sulphur line with some debris. We got in there and couldn’t get any good bites on the troll, but we did find a small log and broke out the spinning tackle. We ended up catching some dolphin off of the log even though they were finicky and called it a day.
