Trip Info

The Catch
King Mackerel (Kingfish)
Triggerfish (Gray)

The Schuster family and I headed out for more kings today. We had fair conditions early on and made pretty good time getting offshore.

Flipper was out in full force, it seemed like every time we got into some fish the dolphins showed up and the bite shut down. We had several nice king bites today, one went 30 lbs. We also caught several bonito which made for some fun fights.

The last hour or so we bottom fished in hopes for some mangrove or mingo snapper, but couldn’t get past all the triggerfish. The weather turned sour fast, so we packed it up a little early and headed for the dock.

Tight Lines, Captain Jesse Johnson
