?

If I write a book showing you techniques for landing "COWS", and gear selection would you buy it?

    It could've been luck the first few times, but anyone who still thinks Billy catches these fish because of luck, aren't seeing the bigger picture...

    Many people seem to be missing that this was a report for last Thursday, when the BFT were biting kite bait left and right, there's another post on this very forum about it.

    Knowing when the bite happens, where it happens, how it's happening, and being able to get on the bite, with the right method, as soon as you learn that it happens, that's what gives success...

    The schools that bit in this case were identified last Wednesday on Fishdope. People were on them Thursday morning.

    You're either in the game or you're not...

    I don't normally grill tuna, but I tried cooking it with a friend's recipe and it came out great. PM me for the recipe.

    Thanks, Marcel! Billy has a huge kill bag with ice and sea water in there to keep the fish fresh.

    We're not planning to apply for any records, this is just our personal record. Yes, it was a TEAM effort and the rail method was apply.

    For all the trolls out there, just calm down and enjoy the report for what it is! Go out there and catch some fish! :starwarskid5:

    That's crazy. When Billy first texted me those pics I was in awe......still am....lol. Congrats to the entire crew on what is truly a trip of a lifetime.

    You guys now have a lot more in common with Zane Grey and those "leaping tuna."

    Thanks, Jonathan! Yes, we were blessed with a great crew on this trip. We couldn't have landed all 3 fish without everyone working together. It's a TEAM effort for sure when we go "cow" hunting.

    I wanna know about this book of knowledge that's going to be a best seller and the countless cows that have been caught.

    I've been skunked so many times but this book I'm sure will be the map to the treasure chest we have all been searching for.

    I'd buy Billy's recipe book first, then his cow catching techniques second......
    so I knew what to do with the fish I caught.
    Awesome fish...
    Awesome plate presentation...
    Great Job!
