WMO Day 1

Our first day of the WMO aboard Exile 65 started off with acres of two tone dolphins everywhere! We were fishing in the NE Corner of the Wilmington Canyon and we didn’t see our first bite until 1030 on the left long ballyhoo with a blue party hat. Keith fought the fish for awhile and it didn’t look like a bad fish so we measured it boatside and the white measured an inch shy of the minimum so we let em go.

The remainder of the day was rather slow and we made our way to the SW corner of the Wilmington canyon when a decent sized blue came in on the left teaser (pink squid chain with a blue and white express chaser). After an awesome switch by Joe to the 80W pig pitch Keith was on for a heck of a fight. The blue never jumped and gave Joe a shot at the leader quite a few times and stayed down hard until finally we got the fish boatside to measure. She was 108″, 6″ shy of the minimum. Awesome fish! Made the day.
