Dunlaveys hook six fish at once and land them all – Sun

They looked for weedlines and floating debris, but found none. At 17 miles out, two lines got hit on the port side and two dolphin were jumping behind the boat. Then a starboard line got hit, Cecilia left the helm to grab the rod and Dan slowed the boat.

While he got each of them a fighting belt, the other three lines got hit, giving them six fish on at the same time.

“I set the hooks as best I could,” Dan said.

Each of them landed a fish. Then they picked up two more rods and the lines were crossed, but they were able to uncross them and land those fish.

The last two lines also were crossed, but the Dunlaveys uncrossed them and landed those fish, making them 6 for 6 in a frantic hour of fishing.

By then it was 9:30, and with six fish weighing 11-17 pounds in the cooler, “we decided to head home for the day,” Dan said. “It was a great husband-and-wife day on the water.”

Fish of the week

Bobby Nicholson and Tom Greene enjoyed a red-hot snook bite from 9:30-10:15 a.m. Tuesday at Lake Worth Inlet with Capt. Steve Gordon. The men had bites almost every time they cast out a live mullet or pinfish and landed several doubleheaders.

One time, after Nicholson hooked a snook, Gordon put his conventional outfit in a rod-holder so he could land the fish. Moments later, the rod doubled over. Greene grabbed it and reeled in a snook shortly after Nicholson reeled in his. Both fish were about 8 pounds.

Nicholson caught the biggest fish of the morning, an 18-pounder.

Greene, of Custom Rod Reel in Lighthouse Point, said another productive technique right now is to slow-troll live mullet up and down canals that empty into the Intracoastal Waterway early in the morning and late in the afternoon.

Mike Lendl and Mike Barnard caught five fish weighing a total of 25.45 pounds Sunday to win the King of the Glades Club Trail tournament in the canals along Alligator Alley out of the Miami Canal rest area boat ramps.

Jon Farmer and Mark Sommer were second at 23.4 and Sommer had the big bass at 6.08. Billy Brown and Dave Mathis were third at 17.39, followed by Tyler Nekolny and Noah King at 17.38 and James Sloan and Bruce Swain at 16.58.
