1st off, between 3 of us we caught a gazillion skates. Unhook one, drop back down, another on. This went on most of the day. The wind was non existent and at one point, our drift took us in a complete circle.
Had some small sea bass early but not even a throwback, so we kept sliding around the same southern area. When the wind did pick up some, it was around noon and most likely from the approaching storms. We started to catch some consistent throwbacks and i boated an 18" and the other 2 guys each got a 14" Sea Bass. We heard thunder and saw lightening over in Delaware so it was time to boogie in.
At the end of one of the drifts, we were just starting to go back up and do another and as i am staring 8 ft. to the side of the boat, in the water, here goes a 3.5-4 ft. long Mahi Mahi cruising just under the surface, parallel to us, going the opposite way. So we turn around to try and get it to hit a minnow, but by the time we had swung around, it was nowhere to be seen. This is not the 1st Mahi that i have heard about in the area, so they are around.
Bait was minnows and squid.
