Mixed Bag 6/1/09

Newly wed couple joined us on their honeymoon for a little excitement on the water. Fishing's been slow on the inside, so we wandered offshore looking for anymore floaters or possible action from Ahi feeding in porpoise schools. We found our self's 20 miles offshore and near a buoy due west of the harbor. Being that the buoy is so far offshore (28 miles), it doesn't get alot of pressure from most of the fleet. So we decided to check it out since we were close. We made one pass with the lures out and caught a couple 25 pound big eye tuna. Another pass caught us an Ono, another pass gave us a double hook up, one Ono and a 50 pound big eye. This went on for a couple hours giving our total for the afternoon, 8 Mahi Mahi, 3 Ono, and various size big eye tuna up to 50 pounds.
The newly weds were pretty excited with the action, giving that we caught his and hers first and largest fish together.

Aloha, Capt. Teddy Hoogs
