Well the Eleuthera's definitely shaped up to be our lucky fishing haven. We departed Governor's Harbor at 6:45am and by 7:00am the Captain reeled in a nice 27 1/2 inch mutton snapper. It is one of our favorite fishes to catch as it yields a great amount of meat. We were hopeful that as we cruised along another fish would snag our line. Unfortunately, this was not the case.
But the next day things were looking brighter. We left the Eleuthera's and headed into deep water as we cruised up to the Abacos. Along the way my rod hooked a fish but as we brought in the fish the 60 lb line broke and we lost the fish, lure and line. Bummer. A while later the Captain's rod hooked a fish. As he reeled it in he also experienced a broken line - this time 100 lb line, lure and fish were lost. Hmmmm.... what are we attracting??? It was just about the time we were going to call it a bad day when the Captain's rod hooked another fish. This time we saw it - a nice mahi. We successfully brought it aboard - all 38 inches of it.
Well, I guess its time to shop for more fishing gear.
