First Fish Day – Cat Island

Today was our first day fishing here in Cat Island, Bahamas on the 54′ Bertram OverUnder.  The wind was blowing at about 15-20 knots out of the east and the weather was partly cloudy and in the upper 70s. With the FULL MOON having been yesterday I was anxious to see what would bite. We started our day on the troll around 8 am.  It didn’t take long to catch 1 sailfish out of a double.  We picked at a dolphin here and there but otherwise action was slow.  Around 1pm we got into a flurry of dolphin and picked at them here and there until we hooked into a white marlin and got a solid release.  Since this was a perish day to work out any kinks before we start fishing a lot we called it a day early.  Not a bad start (1/2 sails and 1/1 whites – plenty of dolphin).
