    We charter the Fortune almost every month as we just love the boat and her crew. Yesterday's trip did not disappoint. It was like a trip that I always dreamt of. I could not believe that it actually came to fruition.

    Long story short, we were driving around looking for any sign of life, it was pretty barren out there. Just past 9 AM, Captain Bruce announces over the PA and says that another boat is drifting on a kelp and we are invited. Once we arrive, the moment our first bait hit the water, all hell breaks lose. I mean there were fish everywhere. (watch the video) The fish were literally jumping out of the water to take our bait. I've been on a wide open bite but never like this.

    Now for the wahoo, several of us saw wahoo swimming around during the open bite. A couple of us actually hooked the wahoo but he broke 2 of the jigs off. Fianally, on a third bite, he is finally gaffed.

    The 18 of us had our limits in about 1.5 hours. We were done fishing before 11 AM in the morning. Although our charter was 1.5 day, we decided to call it a day. Thank you Bruce for all the fish, excellent service, and food! See you next month!

    Here is the video from Captain Bruce:

    unreel video. The best is when the skipper spots that 'hoo and runs down and gaffs it.

    Thanks for posting.
