We decided to make the run to San Salvador searching for a monster wahoo and hopefully a good tuna. The seas were still large with winds at 15-20 out of the NE, but Exile65 was able to make her way through the sea. We got a double header of mahi right away and then it went silent. Mid day the right rigger popped but no hookup. I jogged it a few times and WHAM! A nice wahoo piles on the black and purple Ilander Flasher. After a screaming run we were able to get line back and after two hard digs boatside we sunk the gaff into the nice hoo. I called Joe down from the bridge after we got the second gaff in it and we hauled her over the side. 100 pounder easy!!!! We were AMPED.
We picked at two small tuna and then started to run back to get close to home in case of a possible mechanical issue. We didn’t want to miss the scales with this fish. On the way we came across a weedline with some debris in the deep and we pulled 4 nice gaffer dolphin off of it. Great day of fishing and the wahoo tipped the scales at 106 pounds.
