Triple Header Thursday
Common dolphin checks out the boat
Mating manta rays
Leaving the Inlet heading out to the fishing grounds
When it rains it pours...the team headed to the Gulf Stream a little later than normal because of the heavy fog in the morning. We trolled around for a couple hours on a flat calm day...basically water skiing weather...checking out the dolphins (hundreds of them), sharks, whales (humpback, pilot), molas, and mating manta rays. Just when we almost forgot why we were on the water, three of our four lines went tight! Kelly O'Neil, Corrie Curtis and Tancred Miller each grabbed a rod and the three bluefin were brought on board and given archival tags. The team topped the day off with an additional yellowfin and took advantage of the smooth ride back to the dock!
