Dolphin derby for Ohio men

Nothing says family fun fishing like a whole bunch of dolphin in the cooler!

Brothers John and David Scott own units at Indigo Reef in Marathon.  Their dad, Fred, and friend, Larry Florke, joined them for a week of fishing and included a day offshore with SeaSquared Charters.

There’s been a good run of dolphin not too far offshore lately, so I was excited to get out there and get on them!  We found a weed line about 15 miles south of Marathon and proceeded to catching dolphin.

At first the fish were all sub-legal, so we threw back lots and lots of smallies.  Then we came upon a huge pack of really good size fish.  They were so thick, all four guys were hooked up at once for about 45 minutes.

The blood bath on the boat and everyone’s clothes is testament to the melee.

But it’s all good in the end with 33 dolphin in the cooler.  Most in the 5- to 8-pound class with one bull at about 20 pounds.
