Offshore Fishing in Fourchon / Grand Isle in Southeast Louisiana
J-Bone gettin it done
Went to the deep water this weekend to tangle up with some big nasty pelagic predators. As the sun was setting Saturday night the mahi where flying! Nothing like the explosion of brilliant yellow and emerald to get the blood flowing. As the big steel giant lite up and the flare bellowed fire like a golden dragon the torpedo's began firing. Big boys baby! here they came like giant submarines flying out of the water. 1 by 1 big nasty yellowfin crashed onto the deck. Several hour long battles and a warn out Kamakazi crew filled up the fish boxes to the brim by daylight. As the sun bursted orange across a beautiful Sunday sky we headed to the shelf for one last pelagic monster. What do you use a 2 lb hook, 4 lb weight, 400 lb leader, and a hole butterflyed black fin to catch?...Grouper! A couple broken leaders and one more death match brought the last of our quarry for the day. Great overnight trip to the canyon!
