The week started with two absolutely picture perfect days of great fishing aboard Shodai, our diesel powered Carolina Classic 25. We started out nailing some really nice bull dorado for the dinner table. They were hitting ballyhoo skirted with Jr. Ilander lures, and seemed to be preferring black with red or orange.
Once again, the water was literally boiling with sardines, and this is the reason that I think yellowfin tuna were also holding in the area. While we didn't find any tuna early on the week, we managed to catch some nice 40-50 pound fish later in the week aboard another boat. There were a lot of good sized tuna caught over the week by the fleet, so it is hopefully a sign of things to come!
