    Turtle Bay update

    We finished our second day of fishing out of Turtle Bay. We caught 12 marlin and 20+ Dorado today. Multiples in the jigs and lots of drop back fish. Yesterday was similar to today. Wind is coming tonight. Time to hunker down. Coming home Monday. Hopefully weather lays down. Great trip!
