Some great fish
photos here. That's a giant dorado Vasco.
If you're in the vicinity of the Gulf Stream
this time of year it's hard not to catch fish
with heavy tackle is easy, just haul it in. Lighter gear
takes some skill and sail handling. Don't suck fishing line into your prop, if you start your engine
Here's my first mate with some summer gaffer mahi (dorado)
And no fuss filleting on decks. Wash down directly, no prob.
We rig real ballyhoo on coastal passages and have some fake ballyhoo in the tackle box, and use spoons near shore for Spanish and king mackerel. We use a basic downrigger to keep it at least a few feet below the surface. Watch out for seabirds if you're on the surface.
