Pelagic Trip with Brook Dejene Charter

Had Brook on board with son Zachary and both of his brothers in law. Plan was to do an inshore bottom fish trip. After watching the weather forecast we decided to make a run offshore and try for the best. Left the dock around 10am and flat seas. Plan was to try for bluefin knowing it was a morning bite but would try and if not pot hop for mahi, and try the bluefin in the evening. Got to the hot spot and bite was over, tried for an hour anyway no bites, guys were new to jigging so that with the heat and no wind decided to change up the pace. Pot hopped and the guys caught their first mahi and on light tackle. After landing a dozen headed back to original spot, charter only had an hour to give it a shot, again no bites, but buddies started getting bites towards the end of day. Charter had to get back but were happy landing the mahi's! Fun day with beautiful conditions and a great family to fish with.
