Illinois and the Albacore

Posted July 30, 2019

It was an absolutely wonderful day the ocean was almost as flat as a pond that’s a good plan. The crew I had it got on the boat and started telling me fish stories from Florida to Alaska so when I heard that the fleet was catching ribbon fish I knew that was going to be good enough. So I decided to venture out to the shoals that are outside the inlet. Starting now we come across red drum but every time we tried to get clothes they would go down and not let us in casting distance. And then we went out a little further and found the Albacore in schools and were able to start picking some off we kept six but released Mini. Shortly after that we saw a Cobia swimming around the outside of the Albacore and we tried to hook him twice but were unsuccessful and then near the end of the trip hooked up with a king mackerel and ended up losing him. All I can hear the D’Orsay was us the biggest fish that she’s ever been able to catch and the father add a smile from ear-to-ear so I believe it was a successful fishing trip from the crew of the fishing Taxi tight lines give us a call let’s take you fishing
