I’m a little behind here but we got out four days ago for a 5 hour am trip and were very short crewed. An aged to hook a couple of sails out of 6 bites but no releases. Fun little shake down trip to see what’s up.
Yesterday we did a morning trip again and went 2/3 on sailfish and had another on the right teaser but it didn’t switch. We also had a tuna pile on the 30# setup but popped it off early on – blessing in disguise.
Today we made it out for 4 hours targeting wahoo and caught 3/5 wahoos.
There has been some greenish water around but the fishing is remaining decent. Looks like we will have a few days off here before things heat up.
Fun day of fishing here in Grenada. Beautiful weather with the sun shining and a 15-20 knot tradewind and some fish bitin!
We finished the day 2/3 on sailfish, raising 1 more that didn’t eat, boated a 125# yellowfin tuna and two mahi one of which was 43 pounds. Gotta love Grenada!
After a week of prepping and getting things together on the Exile 45 along with a few sea trials, we were ready to go get her to Grenada today. Me, Kristie and Matthew took off at first light and started our way to Grenada. We got on the chug to conserve fuel and once we were about half way to Grenada we got lines in and right away, blue marlin on the right teaser. Matthew switched him to a plug and game on.
Kristie our in a solid fight for a clean release on a 150# blue marlin. Shortly after we were on again on the right long. Kind of a mystery bite but it took a lot of drag. Kristie was on again and once we got the fish boatside for the release it was clear it was her first white marlin!!!!
As we got closer to Grenada and got to the edge we switched over to wahoo gear and it didn’t take long to catch a 30# wahoo for sashimi and dinner tonight! We bounced out from there and tried to find a sailfish but ran out of time as we wanted to get in as well as we had some generator issues I needed to sort out. All in all, successful boat move and always nice to throw in some good fishing in transit!
