After that we followed birds down to 20 miles where there were loads of dorado including several swimming through our baits but they refused to touch anything we put in front of them.. after that frustration we headed south and hooked a white marlin on a circle hook ballyhoo that put on a good show before being tagged & released for Kennon Todd.. last action was at the "hump" where we had multiple wahoo strikes and hook ups - 2 made it into the boat providing all the students with fish to take home..
