There I was, ya see. Just minding my own business. I just happened to glance over the side of the boat. There he was, chasing me, with a twinkle in his eye. He wasn’t four feet behind the boat. I wasn’t looking to catch a fish today, but who turns down fresh Mahi Mahi? A.K.A Bull Dolphin, A.K.A AHI. I didn’t believe it worked. He was right underneath my fishing pole on the starboard side. I released the friction on the reel and less than four seconds later, Pete, the Mahi Mahi bit down hard. I pulled slightly to set the hook, and the fight was on. All I had to do was literally reach down and grab old Pete. It was too easy, no fun, so I actually let him run about 200 feet out while I hove-to with the boat. Then I tired him out and brought him on board. Pete was 40 ” from head to tail. Now he’s a little less, and a whole lot skinnier. Tonight, we shall feast on Pete.

  1. Hey Dave,
    Don’t play with your food. Especially fresh Mahi. Deck it and start cutting. On those bulls, eat the section right above the eye in the forehead fresh off of your filet knife. Best ever!
