Captain David and the Explorer got an early start today with client John Wellborn fishing at first light. They had lines in the water at 6:30am and got a few early-rising Bonita to use for bait.

The first good eatin’ fish was a White tuna weighing about 15lbs. After a few mystery nibbles, the Penn spinning rod screamed off its report and Mr. Wellborn roped in a 40lbs.+ Macarella (Spanish Mackerel in gringo). The early bird may get the worm, but on the Explorer the early fish get the hook!
