Fished with Joanna and Mike last Monday for mahi. We ended up with four small mahi and an albie. We had a touch of bad luck and hooked and lost two gaffer mahi and another albie. Lots of bites. That may be my last mahi trip as the weather and Montauk are coming. Pro Tip: Keep the rod bent. A bent rod is the cushion that keeps a fish from throwing the hook.
