October 28, 2010 – Lots of rain today

The past few days have been mostly cloudy but with just a light drizzle and no wind to speak of…today that changed.  It was decent early in the morning but by noon it opened up and we had heavy rains and strong winds until about midnight.

The group that went offshore today on the 42′ custom said it was rainy with 5 ft seas.  They caught 5 mahi and said they could have caught 20.  They released a sailfish, raised 3 marlin…hooked one but it broke off…not horrible fishing considering the conditions.  Any time you hook or even see a marlin it’s a special day…I don’t care if it’s the only fish you saw all day.  Almost every captain down here will trade 20 sailfish for one marlin.

That same group is doing a full day inshore tomorrow hoping for a trophy roosterfish…hopefully the water isn’t too muddy.

The guys on the 36′ express were out there in the rain also and they caught a black marlin…I know they caught some mahi mahi also but no one talks about mahi mahi if they catch a marlin.
