Started out the Morning with a slow kick going 3-5, decided to change Up and play with mahi and come back to tuna in afternoon. Landed over 20 Mahi on light tackle and went back to the Tuna coming tight on 3 right away with a bunch of skipjacks.
Effie Mae moved into second behind Big Oil s 77-pounder that was the first fish weighed when the scales opened. It wasn t hard to beat yesterday s 6-pound dolphin, and a 33-pounder on Christine Marie seems to be leading a 32 on No Question.
