Re: fishing on passage

Capt. Fisher,

Mmm, yummy. 300# is a lot of tuna, I'm assuming you can it?

BTW, both of you are crazy, and you with one motor on the 21'?

Re: fishing on passage

This one was so heavy I had to filet it before I could hold it up for the pic.


Here's another one before all the blood and guts. I've found a green cedar plug to be best for mahi.

Re: fishing on passage

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. Fishing 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.

Re: fishing on passage

As Peter said back near the beginning of this thread, fishing is for fun, catching is for dinner.

I would love to hear your setup, how you catch them. My wife and I both love squid.
