Dolphin Tournament

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 3:28 pm

It`s me again (Capt. Joe`s Grandson). Well Memorial Day weekend my dad , his dad, my dad’s 2 friends , and I participated in the Sigsbee Marina Dolphin Derby. We went out in my dad’s friend’s 25ft brownie. After about 20 minutes heading east we spotted birds and put the lines in the water but after 20 minutes nothing had bitten the line so we brought them in and started heading east and by that time it was about 11:00 a.m. I spotted more birds so we headed there and put the lines in. This time we trolled for 30 minutes and had no bites so we brought the lines in.We searched for 30 minutes and it was about 12:00 and we spotted a weed line so we trolled along side of it and up ahead we saw some chicken dolphin jumping and when we got there one bit the line and I reeled it in. We brought the lines in , shut off the engine , and started pitching ballyhoo and caught 3 more. The rest of the day we didn`t get anything. Even though we did not win the tournament, we saw a really cool thing. While we were heading to a new spot, I was standing on the gunnel holding onto the t-top and I saw a sailfish about two feet away from the boat and about two feet under the water. He was all lit up and he had his fins up. Then I saw another one just sitting on top of the water resting while we were trolling.

That’s Key We Fishing.
