We fished with Chi Chi Charters on Saturday, April 15, 2017. Our cruise docked at 9 AM and we had agreed on 10 AM as our start time. Got on the boat and they had beer, softdrinks, and all of the margarita ingredients. Louise (sp?) was our captain and Alex was our first mate. Boat took off right at 10, and Alex started throwing out lures. Trolled for about 10 minutes and hooked a fish. I wanted to make sure my wife to caught something, so she reeled it in and it was a mahi mahi.
Alex threw the line back in the water and we started trolling again. Trolled across all the way to Playa Del Carmen then started trolling about 200-300 yards off the beach. That mahi mahi turned out to be the only fish of the 4 hour trip. I can say that it wasn't from a lack of trying. We never stopped trolling, and Alex never stopped reeling in one of the 6 lines we had in the water to check the bait, change it out if needed, change the color of the skirts, etc.
All in all it was fun. Glad my wife got to catch a fish, and I'm also glad the beer was cold and plentiful. I certainly wish we had caught more fish, but I understand that's the way things go sometimes.
