offshore weekend report

On sunday we had an offshore trip and these guys didnt want anything but meat. So we set off towards the south hoping to find some of the wahoos that had been roaming about for the last couple days. We started out on the ten fathom hump and no bites there. Started trolling toward the weather buoy and longrigger sea star goes off with a nice wahoo. Cleared the spread and caught a nice 40# class wahoo. Mission number 1 was coimplete, now its time to find some mahi. We trolled over to the weather buoy and as we trolled past a school of mahi popped up and we caught a couple. We cranked in the spread and prepared the bailing gear and went to work. The dolphins werent eating like wild dogs, but they were biting fairly steady and we would pick at them and catch one or two each time we drifted by the buoy. They were staying down deep and there were several buoy jacks and blue runners there that would bite our baits too. We stayed at the weather buoy for almost two hours and caught plenty there and there was one dolphin there that we couldnt get to bite that was about fifty pounds. After catching all we could with the dolphins we turned and went back to working in 20 fathoms. We had several more wahoo bites that never came tight and caught a couple bonitas. stopped on an inshore wreck, but it had been picked over pretty bad and only had small sea bass to show.
