Team Surfari woke up Thanksgiving morning and brushed their teeth anxiously waiting to go out on the Va Pue for their first day of pre-fishing in Chinandega. We had an awesome breakfast at Hotel Chancletas and then headed down to Marina Puesta del Sol where the Va Pue was waiting for us at the docks. We look forward to this trip every year and this year we were frothing to find some blue water and big fish. We headed offshore about 36 miles and were surprised to see that the water stayed pretty green the whole way. Luckily the wind was mellow and we were able to find some floating debris and some nice dolphin. Kristin schooled up the first fish and did a great job getting it in gaffing range for Jeff to stick him in the head and nail down our Thanksgiving dinner for the night! Then Jeff got his shot and dropped back a free swimming ballyhoo on a circle hook to a hungry bull dolphin. After a 7 second drop back in free spool, Jeff slowly brought the drag forward to mechanically bury the circle hook in the corner of the Dolphin’s mouth. After a nice fight we had our second bull in the box. Brodie got the honors of posing for some nice sponsor shots with the lit up fish. We then landed a few other small dolphin and decided to head back to the Marina for some cold beers! No turkey for us, but a great day of fishing with a great crew!
