    92.8# on a certified scale. The painful part was an hour and 20 minutes pulling on a 90J and 40lb...half of the time spent on my knees rail rodding it haha

    90J is obviously my surface iron stick. But I was too lazy to even bring my 665H on the trip, so I just said, "Eff it, even if I hook a yellow on my Sabre on the yo-yo, it wont last that long." Famous last words haha. Daiwa 40 6.1:1(did NOT help), 40lb BG, and a Tady 4/0 all white w/glo-back...dropped the jig til I hit the knot on my top shot(long top shot cuz it's my jigstick), about 70 yds. Got thumped about 50yds down...

    Nice one Mike!
    Last year "Jig Stick" & I learned to never ever, ever, ever, ever drop the jig down deep on the jig stick!
    Had a buddy "Whiteyfish" on my 2day charter do the same, dropped the megabait down deep on his 9ft Teremar...
    Never know what could be down there & losing a fish of a lifetime will haunt you...
    Bendo!
    30+ minutes later not making any gains on getting her up & finally line broke as what most likely was a huge Opah inhaled the entire jig per Capt Markus.
    So ya im sure it did hurt, would have hurt even more if you busted ger off.
    Congrats!
