Could be the fish of a lifetime. Buddy got bit on a Salami and got spooled very quickly.You spend all that money to go on the trip and finally hook the fish of a lifetime and your not going to throw your rod and reel in the water? I would, no matter how much you've paid to get this experience, it's not guaranteed. Go for it, you may not get another chance.
Yeah and if he wouldn't have gone for it. He would killed the fish in a different way. And missed out on a 300 lber.Could be the fish of a lifetime. Buddy got bit on a Salami and got spooled very quickly.
Accurate 50T, in the water. Oh yeah he got it back and landed a 349 lb Yellowfin!
These are not published on YouTube only in my private collection. Like to keep it that way.
Fish went #224, The crew on the Excel sure can help you make your dreams come true. Hope this footage sells them some tickets.
Another reason to put the heat on a fish early, no need to put your rig into the water. If you can't stop them on one rig, you have to lower the drag on each subsequent rig so you are likely just to end up chasing the fish down (watched that done that twice). Personally, I'd rather crank up the drag and either stop the fish or pop him off. Of course that doesn't work with less than 100yds of line left.
Maybe just as well for reasons I will explain later. Trying to be considerate of certain requests. I did think they would show up here just not for public consumption. I can show them to you in private later on the RS in a couple of weeks but showing them here may get me in hot water. Thought about that after the fact. Shouldn't have rushed into this considering what was asked of me.
