Tom Kuljuus Day Two

After such a great day of fishing yesterday, we were very excited about what today would bring. Instead of worrying about sailfish bait, we began to concentrate on bait for dolphin and wreck fishing. As soon as we got to the deep water our team began to catch dolphin and it was looking like another great day. After getting some mahi mahi, we had a big strike on a trolled lure. The fish ran off a bunch of line and after some great angling by Tom, we gaffed the twenty-five pound wahoo and put it in the fishbox with the mahi. After the wahoo, we stopped at a shipwreck and were rewarded with three nice black groupers. When the groupers slowed down, our team picked up where we left off by catching more dolphin. A few miles to the south, I stopped the L&H near another sunken shipwreck. Just like yesterday, the action was fast and furious! When the baits got down, they got eaten. At first we were getting big amberjacks, then Tom pulled up a nice African Pompano. After the pompano we caught a few almacos before deciding to start heading back. On the way home the L&H found mahi almost the entire way. With all the mahi, bottomfish, and Tom's wahoo it was another great trip. We took some photos and cut some fish for our crew back at the marina, excited about tomorrows trip!
