Date: 2020-09-06

dolphin fish|mahi|Knot Nancy|charter fishing miami Today was a full day dolphin/mahi trip with Michael, Scott, Borja, and Ray. The action started out very slow as choppy seas created by a rain storm made finding any weedlines very difficult. As the storm cleared the area, the seas calmed down a bit and the sun came out. We started finding thin weedlines and worked several with live bait. Trolling produced nothing. Finally broke the ice with a single throwback size dolphin/mahi. More searching and the birds showed up. Found a few sooty terns that put us on a small school. Put 6 fish in the box. More searching for an extended period of time with no action. Finally, Hawk Eye Michael Richmond spotted a frigate bird that put us on another small school. Added 5 more fish to the box. Back to running and searching. The wind and seas kicked up and made running more difficult. We kept at it and once again you know who spotted three sooty terns doing the dolphin dance. This time the school stuck around with us as everyone was hooked up and catching fish. It was steady action for about 20 minutes. By this time it was time to start heading back to TNT Marine Center to clean fish. Final tally for the trip was 22 dolphin/mahi in the box and 6 that were throwbacks.
