Short version: Dave fell in water while making bait, threshers went off, C&Rd 2 out of 4 chances, had about 8 tail strikes, saw two free jumpers, talked to some BD bros on the radio.
On Saturday I talked to Emerson about fishing local for some bass or barries on the shoe after he helped me with some work on my car. Around 9pm he remembers he has an obligation so F it ! no fishing, oh well. Then around 10pm my friend Dave calls to tell me about his daughters prom blah blah blah. So after hearing the Ts bit good on Sat. I asked if he might want to go and hes says sure can I bring a friend? He brought Keith who has little to no saltwater experience. No problem. Back in the Saddle!!
So we arrive early and a guy I met last week (can't remember his name) on the boat Yknot slings me some cured macks Nice! Thanks a lot !
We try to make bait but the anticipation gets the best of me and I can't wait to put one of those cured babies in a BOM and start draggin' We trolled for about 3 hours for 1 KD.
Worked my way out to the fleet that was gathering and started getting tailwhacked and hooked our first T of the day about 120-130. Quick release on a very lively thresher. I put Keith on it and he was fucking stoked, he couldn't believe how hard the sucker pulled . Kept at it and got another one about an hour after blowing a chance at one after it returned to eat the bait. It was Daves turn and his PB, We guessed that one at about 160-180 and let her go too. Well she pretty much told us she was leaving Didn't get any pics of the Ts but we took some crappy ass video.
Anyway awesome day on the water great weather, great company cooperative sharks. Talked to Birdman, @EZ and Finseeker on the radio nice too meet you guys out there today.
The last pic is what happens when an angry thresher comes up against a forged 7/0 hook, a brand new 6364 XXXXh SS and an avet 50 spooled with 200lb spectra. All that with 36 lbs of drag!!!Abracadabra homes

Thanks for the help out there today. Today was the most frustrating fishing day for me that I have ever had. We finally did hook up at 3:25pm and boated a #150. At least we had a happy ending.
