Up before the Sun

Monday, August 18, 2008

One reason would be am up before the Sun is that Capt Jeff is in town - We are having a fishing day with Abel today.

Chatting Jo on coconut phone and getting ready, time moving a bit fast I can tell by the light in the sky I better bust a move have to call Capt Jeff at 5:45 am.

The water was smooth and our lines were tight. We could not ask for a better day on the water. Fished 3 spots with the first and third being the best - caught yellow tail, mutton and mangrove snapper. Jeff caught a jack and a mackerel - we had to throw the groupers back they were not quote old enough to keep.

Abel taught is that if your line is twisted and stops the reel from turning smoothly - take you hook and weight off let your line out when the boat is moving and it will straighten your line. Next time I see Capt Jeff I will have to ask him how well it worked.

Off we go
