Another day we had two Mahi Mahi on the lines at the same time. Unfortunately, the guys probably reeled them in too fast and did not let them tire out. As a result, both leaped off the hooks just as they were being lifted onto the aft deck. It was still exciting to see them fighting in the water. They probably became dinner for another sea critter!
We used a deep sea fishing pole and a hand line. Each had different lures. We think a Wahoo got away with our pink hula lure leaving us with only a line! The fishing made for a break in the boredom and added a little excitement. We will not be fishing in the BVI as you need a license and the reef fish have nasty diseases.
We are moving along at a great speed considering we have a following sea. With the aid of the motor at times, we are making good time and hope to be in Tortola by Wednesday.
