Report: We went to trolling with ballyhoo and spoons(on planers) today, also we went out to clean water (about 14 miles). What a difference. I went through 2 dozen bally's, 10 strips and still caught most of the 12 kings on the spoon behind a #8 planer (that's 80 feet behind). And, oh yea, we had a 25# wahoo on the spoon too. That was a thrill, after the planer gets to the rod tip you have to hand line the fish to the boat. That can be a chore with a fish like a wahoo or tuna. The reason for going through so much bait and catching most fish on the spoons was the amount of short strikes. Kingfish have exceptional eyesight, they can cut a bait 1/4 inch behind the hook 95% of the time, especially when you slow down to fight another fish and leave the outriggers out trying to get a double on. After we limited on the kings we went to all surface to try for a sail. Had one shot in the same area we were catching the kings but missed the hookup and the fish wouldn't come back up. Well, an outstanding day catching anyway. I'll be back doing it again tommorrow. 'Till then, Capt. Guy
