    I had the lucky opportunity to meet the legendary geofish who took me out on a great day at sea!

    We decided to target mahi knowing that the bite would be challenging. Despite all odds, we managed to find some kelp patties that were holding decent amount of mahi! Super stoked to catch this hunker!

    Caught on live sardines. The barge told us that they weren't biting on them as much. Perhaps too many people are throwing artificials lately?

    I'm glad I got to go out with geofish. He is a great guy and super knowledgeable! Gotta undo the bad bass habits... haha! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and fine tuning my craft.

    Good stuff, they're fun to catch. I've been throwing mostly lures to get them but last time out I had a few dead 7" deans and would pin them on a 3/0 let them sink 40 feet back on 40# mono and after about 15-20 min a big bull would smash it in the rod holder everytime. Did that for about 10 fish with c&r.
