Monday’s trip was with Jeff and Brenda Fudge visiting from Quitman, Arizona. Again 15kt winds out of the NE prevented us from venturing far offshore in search of mahi schools. Plan B was to troll south down the outside edge off the third reef then set up for kite fishing over an artificial reef and try for a sailfish. Usually several kingfish are caught during the trip south but today fishing was tough and we had only one good strike that unfortunately spit the hook. Once over our target area the kite and live baits were deployed. Shortly thereafter our bottom rod bent over and up came a nice bright red mutton snapper. After staring at the kite baits waiting for our sailfish to appear, the two spinning rods on the upwind side of the boat started to peel off line and a couple of mahi began jumping and putting on quite a show behind the boat.
