Offshore Saturday 10/19: Invincible 40 Cat

Left SSM at 7am on Saturday. I was invited by a friend and customer to go on a fishing trip/demo aboard Surfside Marina’s Invincible 40ft Cat outfitted with quad 400 Mercs. We were met with solid 2 ft seas with a few 3’s mixed in. The boat was amazing, we cruised out at 55mph easily and didn’t slam at all. Even when we did put it in the air it was a nice soft landing. At one point we were doing 63mph with no pounding. What a machine!!

We made our first stop about 50 miles out and picked up 20 Bliners in about 30 minutes and made bait.
We continued on out to our AJ spot and put a limit of 60# AJ’s in the box in about an hour. My customer got the chance to put his new custom rods and talica 25’s to the test.
After limiting on AJ’s we decided to make a run out to try a few swordfish drops. At this point the waves were 3-4fters but spaced very far apart and made for very very comfortable fishing conditions, especially in this boat. We could make 50-60 mph every where we went.

We made our first drop with no luck. On the second drop we got tight with in minutes of hitting the bottom. She came to the boat quickly and it was a small pup. But this didn’t matter as my customer had been in pursuit of a swordfish for nearly a year and caught this one on his new custom hand crank set up we had just delivered to him. Talk about a happy customer! At this point we made a third drop and after 30 minutes we decided it was time to crank it up and go see if we could put a Warsaw grouper in the boat. I started cranking and about 500ft off the bottom I felt something thumb the rod. I stop and yelled, “we just got hit”. With everyone second guessing we saw the second tap tap and then the rod loaded up! We were on! This was a better fish and after a 30 minute fight we got the weight off. We got the fish boat side but she was just out of gaff range (we weren’t in my boat so we didn’t bring a harpoon!! Dang it!!!) and she made a run stripping about 400ft of line off the reel. She calmed down for about a minute and out of no where the line went slack... the hook pulled... what a heart breaker. I was thankful we got her close enough to at least be counted as a catch.
After that we decided to run in to see if we could catch a Warsaw. On the first drop we hooked up but got hung in the structure on the way up and broke off! On the second drop we hooked up again and this time we got her all the way to the top! At this point it was getting later in the day so we headed home. We came in at 56mph.

We ended the trip going 2 for 2 on swordfish and kept 6 amberjack, 10 vermillion snapper and a 60# warsaw grouper.

I can’t say enough good things about Captain Brandon Wilson and the Surfside Marina crew for taking us out to demo the 40 Invincible Cat. Make sure you get with Doug from VIP Boats at Surfside Marina if you are interested in buying one of these awesome boats. Attachment 1
