Mahi at the Dump, SW corner, 8/22

It was happenin' at the Dump on Friday. We nailed about 20+ Mahi to 18 lbs, found a pod of big ones and had them under the boat for 40 mins. (Attached a photo of a nice bull). They were set up on the high flyers, at least the ones that hadn't been pulled for a few days. Also came across a big log around the NW corner, must have had 30 fish on it. Only a few boats were out, most trolling for Tuna it seemed. We did see some tuna action, hard to tell if YFT or BFT from the splash, the water was about 74 degrees, we suspect Albacore or YFT, had no luck ourselves, but we had come for the Mahi anyway. Friends went out Saturday with the same results, just lumpier conditions. Fish are in close enough for the smaller boats, was worth the trip for us.

NICE FISH! Boy do they taste great - don't they?

Not familiar as to where the "Dump" is. How far out does one have to go for Mahi around here. I've caught them in Puerto Rico - but didn't realize they were up this way.

Thanks

One of the best eating fish there is!

The "Dump" is about 40 miles due S of Gay Head, you'll find it on chart 12300. That's about as close as they seem to come, though we did find some on the NW corner around 30 miles out. They like the warmer water and are only found S, SE of the Vineyard in the gulf stream eddies.
