Short Fishing Charters




Last week the trade winds started to blow quite strong again, & as usual people wanted to go out fishing.
The first charter on Friday morning had to be canceled because the winds were blowing a steady 20knts.
Saturday, the 4 people arrived at the dock, but 1 Lady was showing signs of having had a heavy night, not good for the conditions.
Once pass the Lighthouse, the seas started getting rougher.
About 15mins after the lines were in the water, we were into a school of yellowfin.
The first fish was just on board when, the Lady called out, to take the boat back to shore, now.
That was the end of that charter, the other couple were fishing people, so were disappointed that it ended that way, but there isn't much we can do when someone is throwing up all over the place.
Thank goodness the charter on Sunday was better & they managed to catch fish, mind you, we lost a few, & Terry had a Repala just miss his throat. The Mahimahi was by the boat & Terry was going to gaff it, when it through the hook.
