John Rutikus joined us for two days and wanted to try for sailfish or whatever was biting. He and a few friends met at the boat after a long night and were ready to try their luck. Wes and I figured our best bet was to kite fish near a shipwreck where we saw some sails at the day before. As soon as we got set up we got a nice mutton snapper on the surface and we knew there had to be more. Wes and I set a couple lines down and began getting steady action with the muttons. Just before noon we got a double header sailfish on the kites and the day was looking better and better. After a few more snappers we caught two big sharks, back to back and the guys enjoyed this very much. Just before the wind died we caught another sail on the kite and this meant that everyone had caught a nice fish. We caught a few more snappers and a couple of kingfish and decided to call it an early day.
The next day we decided to change it up a bit and trolled offshore to look for some of the tuna that had been out there. It didn't take long before we started hooking up and the tuna were all nice size and boy did they fight. We were catching them on small lures and when we would hook up they would take a lot of line. This meant for a tough battle for our guys who were coming off their second big night in a row. After getting almost two-hundred pounds of the strong fighting tuna our team had enough and we came in a little early. It was a fun two days of fishing with these guys and the catching was pretty good also.
