Shelley and I fished Hualtulco México for the first time in a panga. We traveled 21 miles offshore, and fished among 1,000 jumping Spinner Dolphins. The Yellowfin Tuna mingle with the dolphins, as they both feed on the Bigeye baitfish. We hooked 4 tuna simultaneously. We reeled in two, which took about ten minutes to do. Miraculously, the other two were still on the lines, and we successfully caught them, too! This was because we were using 9/0 barbed hooks on the lures, which is legal in Mexico. If we had been using 3/0 barbless hooks, like on Gabe, they would have been long gone. We shared our catch with the Captain, and several of the employees at the hotel. It was delicious!

Good fishing!
