With the wind blowing too much and the water too junk to go bottomfish, and trolling seemingly a waste of gas, what can a couple of old fut fishermen do? Sit at home and watch the grandkids? NOT! We take the third option and hop on Bucketman's boat and go drag shell for the tako! First drop, hanapaa! We gettum in the net and in the boat! Nice size! The tako not showing up in droves but four of them jump our lures and we get three in da boat, with the fourth letting go of the lure before we can get it to the net. Nice size kine: 6Â½, 7Â¾, and 8Â¾ pounds. We gottum all on lures Bucketman makes: Not bad for a few hours relaxation on the water and sure beats sitting home on the couch or staring at the honey-do list! Plus we get tako for holiday parties - yumm! Now if only the dang winds and seas calm enough for us to add onaga and other bottomfish to the menu... Tight lines to all.
