Melody's Dorado

   But we weren't finished. One day Kenneth and I took Carolyn and Melody out for some Albacore looking. Somewhere out there we had an Albacore bite and it turned into a straight Bluefin bite for a good hour. Even Carolyn contributed (Melody slept through the whole thing) and we boated about 15 tuna before they shut off.

We then trolled back towards the "302" when a jig got nailed by a large Dorado. We forced Melody to take it and shortly thereafter, just outside the "303" we picked up a Yellowfin Tuna. Almost a local Grand Slam - but no Yellowtail.  

    No, 1997 wasn't a bad year, but I don't think we'll see Marlin fishing like that again.
