I rode along on the Argo today. We put in a full day and went 1/2 on white Marlin and caught a couple Mahi and 3 small yellowfin tuna. Fun day on the water. My here were a few blue marlin caught by other boats today. But overall fishing was somewhat slow.
We lucked out today with calm weather and sunshine for the first time in over a week. We made our way out to Columbus Point and bottom fished all day in about 90 feet of water. We caught a bunch of Rock Hinds, 2 yellowfin grouper, 2 mutton snapper, some yellowtail snapper, and some jacks and plenty of triggerfish to add to the action. Pretty consistent pick throughout the day.
Today was Jeff and Kim’s first day of two and they wanted to get into some bottom fishing. We tried a few different spots around Hawks Nest Point but the fish certainly were not there. The weather was rainy off and on all day and the wind was a steady 15-25 blowing out of different directions with each passing front. We picked up and spent the last hour and a half trolling and found a frigate with Mahi under it out at Devils Point. They were there thick and the Mahi saved the day! We also saw a cool waterspout today upon the midst of the crazy weather!
Today was pretty similar to yesterday. Stiff 25 knot SE winds made it pretty sporty but the Mahi were everywhere from the Hawks Nest Cut all of the way out to Columbus Point. It was all you wanted and we pretty much couldn’t get away from them. We had a white Marlin in the spread late in the day but it never made a decision on which bait to eat and faded away. Big thanks to Gary for putting another great group together to fish with us in the Bahamas. Thanks for a fun trip guys. Hope to see you all again soon!
Today we had scattered rain and a 15-20 knot SE wind all day. We started off at Devils Point and picked at a Mahi here and there but it didn’t take long to find the mass of dolphin. They were all over and we had 4-5 on at multiple times throughout the day. It was chaos. The biggest dolphin weighed in at 35 lbs caught by Dave. We kept our limit of Mahi and released a bunch more. We even managed to get a circle hook to land in the corner of a wahoos jaw as well and landed that one. We did manage to get a bite from a sailfish late in the day around Devils Point but no hookup. Gary, Dave, Mark and Mark have their last day with is tomorrow. Hopefully it’s a stellar one!
Last night we were greeted with a stiff 20 knot NE wind and heavily overcast skies. We woke up with a lot of the same except a solid 25 knot ENE wind and overcast which made visibility for spotting fish and birds tough.
The morning started off smooth. As we were working towards Dolphin Head he got a white Marlin bite on the right teaser but he never switched. We made two more passes and joe got a bite on the left flat and bam, fish on. At the same time we had a white coming in on the left long but the hooked fish leaped right over the approaching whites head and we never got a bite out of it. Gary got a clean release on the first white of the day.
Soon after we got the lines back in we made our way further down dolphin head and we got another white hooked up. Mark did a solid job on this one and after a great aerial display behind the boat we got the second release of the day. I trolled us down to Columbus but the lack of life and right 5-7 foot chop made be leave to work back to Dolphin Head again.
We managed to hook into a longbil Spearfish and Mk got a clean release on his first ever spearfish. Really awesome fish. I worked the area hard after seeing all of the flying fish getting up everywhere but we only were able to get one small yellowfin to end the day. Solid day on the Over Under.
