    Congratulations indeed! I love reading a report by a fisherman that made a plan and executed it. Short rod, lock down drag spinning reel and four hours of leisurely fishing fun while you grinded it out. Great work.

    Hey, thanks everyone for the kind words, yeah fish of a lifetime. Just seared some with a ginger, sesame, lime dressing, and had some sashimi. So good, high fat content just melted in your mouth. Took me a couple of days to recover from the fight. Lol

    Congrats Chris! Great fish and as always, you hit the rail prepared and skilled to maximize opportunity. I sent the link to Jon T and Cole P for a look. You will remember us as the guys that fished with you on the 6 day RP trip in Sept. 2014.
