    Well gentlemen it was another murderous day aboard the 187 FISH!!! Started our day at 4:00 am with the same enthusiastic crew as last time, Capt. Verne, Brian, Larry, Angel and myself.

    The morning could not be more perfect, zero wind no swell and flatter than flat conditions made for a perfect day to be out on the wide open water. Like always did our home work got the “Fish Dope” and off we went in search of the waiting yellows.

    We are the first on the scene, water was a nice deep blue and 65.5(f) we drop our lines and begin our troll. Slow start at the first stop but relocated to a different spot and a bit warmer water at 66(f), got our first slammmmmmm Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…..

    Shortly after we land our first fish, within minutes we get hit again Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…. Then again Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, three 25 plus lbs yellows on the boat by 8:30 am. This is looking like a repeat of last trip that made the Front Home Page on Bloody Deck, so with that in mind we were on a mission to be on the home page again!!!

    Now boats are radioing us asking what we were using cause no one around us was getting back to back strikes or the success we were having. Boats began to get closer and soon realized that we were the crew of the” 187 FISH”, fishing machine!!! (hahaha), so the news got out and even the sporties began to nosey around (hahaha).

    Brian landed the biggest of all our fish but almost lost it to a desperate Fat Fuck Seal. The seal grabbed it by the tail and off it went. Capt. Verne began the chase down, not allowing the fat bastard to come up for air. We all began to enter the fight, one yelling at it, one slapping the water, Brian holding on working the rod and Capt. Verne right on top of that fat fuck, it was either drown or let this tasty yellow go???? (No pics of the epic fight cause we were all involved in the fight).

    That poor seal had no clue who was the crew on this boat, so he was forced to let it go and Brain gets his prize fish.

    We ended our day in Larry’s tradition by toasting to another fine day of fishing. Enjoy the video and pics.

    Rob forgot to add in the post that he helped out a fellow fisherman when he needed a trolling lure, Rob stepped up so he could have a chance for some fish with an X-Rap

    Would have been a great pic at the end of the "Sea Dog Beat Down" if we had gotten a pic of all of us sending the 1 finger salute, spontaneously, at the end seeing the helpless, gasping for air look on it's face and in those "tired" eyes!! :finger::finger::finger::finger::finger:

    I'm still not sure what was funnier and more memorable, the entire crew of the 187 Fish fully engaged in an all out epic battle to win back the hog size YT out from the fangs of that fat [email protected] Sea Dog or Brian slapping me across the face during our piss poor attempt at a victory "high-five"?!

    Either way gentlemen, it was another perfect day on the pond but more importantly, a great day amongst friends… A good day to be alive to say the least!!

    Outstanding write up Rob! I look forward to our next hunt!!!

    Nice job! Looks like a great time! Be careful throwing a fish on the deck with a jig in it's mouth.... That doesn't always end well! :jig:LOL
