Default 7 Mahi and 1 MERMAID

Another great trip fishing for Mahi Mahi and My first sighting of a Mermaid ! LOL Regina an I went to Catalina for the long weekend, but only fished on Sunday due to the High Winds and waves. We headed out off the east end of Catalina, and 3 miles out Regina spots a kelp Paddy with birds diving ! Yep its the one we want. We worked the paddy for 7 nice Dorado. We were using small circle hooks and a 20 lb. topshot of flouro..When the fishing slowed down, I dove into the 74.3 degree Royal Blue water and speared 3 nice Mahi but the spear pulled through on ALL of them..Oh well, Ill be more prepared next time. Came back to the long point area to anchor for the night and what do we see. A MERMAID off the back of a sail boat..LMAO Hope everyone had a great Holiday. Tim

Hi scubasmith,

Nice goin' guys on the dodo's !! Their runs sure sometimes catches one off guard especially when they go 6 to 8 feet straight up and out of the water !!

Hi Tunavic, Im glad you enjoy the Photos. We try to show our fish in there most beautiful colors. Seconds after gaffing them we snap a few pics while they are still vibrant with color. Thanks for your compliments.
Hi Tsurikichi, the acrobatics and beauty of these fish make every battle unique. What an amazing fish !
