Back offshore looking for Dorado again. went back to the area I had found them the day before. We hooked up with a couple of Bonito pretty quickly. Got them to the boat and got the lines back out. Bam hooked up again, nice Dorado doing aerials. Unfortunately he became unbuttoned, and got away. We ran a little and changed locations. We encontoured a better looking current line and started to work it. Passing through an area with birds etc we had not had anything. The birds and life seemed to Pieter out so we turned around and made another pass in the area of the bird. Fish on. Boated a nice 25-30 Dorado. Lines back out and not long after, fish on again. Another dorado 20-25 pounds was boated. Back to the harbor by noon.

Took out Romuald and friends form Ocachal for a half day inshore trip. The jacks were biting hard. We couldn’t get two lines in the water.
