04/09/09 fishing report
We had two trips again today. The morning trip we took out some friends of mine that work in the boatyard. We got a late start because I had to renew a license. We left the dock around 9:00 and went to catch bait. The speedos had already been hit by every other boat and were not biting. Luckily, we had some left over bait from yesterday. They wanted to try to catch a sailfish because none of them have ever caught one. We slow trolled them the whole trip. We had a couple of sailfish come up and look at the baits but did not want to eat them. Frustrating! I heard from a boat from the next inlet south of us that they were biting good down there, but it was too late to make that run and we went back to pick up our next trip. On that trip we made a long run to the south in the hopes of getting into the sailfish. We fished a wreck before trying for sails and caught a nice amberjack. The wind had picked up a little from the morning so we kite fished for a couple of hours. We did not get any bites doing that so we ended the trip trolling and caught a couple of bonito.
