Nice! I want to catch 1, and I really mean just 1. Lol..
They tried to land a few on those light tackle set ups, but got broke off pretty frequently. Most were caught on 5000 & 8000 series spinning reels.Whew! I know it was fun but your drag plates hate you right now. Crack open the reel side plates and see the black sludge from worn carbon drag plate remnants and spent grease. Each of you crack open your reels and take a photo and post them here. We’ll see whose looks the gnarliest. Lol.
I presume you were using the lighter tackle in the photos. If not, disregard the drag comments.
If you're local to the Houston area, shoot me a DM. I'll take you out there and enjoy watching that battle!My bucket list is to catch one on the fly rod! Thanks for sharing.
Im a native Houstonian. Beleive it or not. Ive caught a few on conventional tackle, but not the fly rod.If you're local to the Houston area, shoot me a DM. I'll take you out there and enjoy watching that battle!
They are ridiculously thick right now at Sabine.I'm jealous. I wish they were thick around the Sabine nearshore for a couple of months each year.
I feel like anytime I say dolphins, every fisherman asks me to clarify if I mean porpoise or mahi mahi. I'm just going to start calling them flipper at this point.Nice. They are fun. The amount of fight they have is amazing. You think they are done and nope the fight resumes. Been spooled a few times at SLP trout fishing.
The following statement has been discussed a few times. Lol. There are no porpoise in these parts. Dolphins yes.
Great report and keep hammering them jetty tuna!!!
