5/11/2019 – Seas were larger than expected, seems to be the trend lately, We set a spread in 200feet of water around 7:30 and trolled out to deeper water, not many weeds until around 350, and not one knockdown. Looking back, I think we ran right past most of the mahi in shallower water. First drop out deep and we hooked two snowy up on the same rig. A few more passes looking for gold & found none. We moved back into the cones looking for something to eat big livebait and we sure found it. Not the cooler-worthy fare we were hoped for, but after about a 30 minute battle, we shared a reluctant visit with a five foot sandbar shark. It took a 15 second rest, slapped the boat and headed back home.
