Sure looked as though it belonged to rain this morning. 100% cloud cover, bit of fog; but Dan Saterfield’s weather team said sunny.
Took a while. They were right. Came a gorgeous day. Took our tog-condo blocks out aways, built just a bit more reef & pressed on.
First stop we had a few mahi. Dern near every stop thereafter too!
Great mercy.. I’ve never seen it like this inshore.
Sea bass only in the fish pool. That’s how I called it before departure. Sure didn’t have many; not on the best day of mahi fishing I’ve ever had—on a partyboat at least.
Near about everyone did have some sea bass though. Joey Fultz of Berlin MD took their pool money fair and square.
Nicked a few fluke too.
And more mahi.
Even had a client limit out: caught ten. Even the guy who slept all day had 2.
Guarantee this: folks are gonna buy spots next August and wonder why we didn’t catch mahi..
Unlikely to repeat. Not until we get a fair start on oyster restoration anyway.
Makes a fun day & a dern fine dinner.
Have a couple special mahi trips scheduled Wednesday & Thursday.
Call 410-520-2076 if interested.
