Congratulations and nice job on the very well written report! You may have a great future ahead of you in fishing journalism - that's how I hear some get paid to fish. Nicely done!

This post wins!

Best post on Bloody Decks I have ever read.

This should be on the front cover of this site, the front cover of Won magazine, and any other fishing related site or magazine.

Proud of you, your little brother, and your father. I would have paid double fare on that trip just to watch this.

Great read young man. Congrats to your lil brother, you, and your pops.

Great write up and reporting. This will be memory of lifetime for your brother, father, and yourself.

How's the fish taste BTW :)

I was on the Tribute the night before yours. The crew was great and helpful. Fishmen on that boat were all experienced, so tangling wasn't so much of a problem.

Will try to get on their trip again in June.

Freddie,
I've a younger Bro' as well, but when the Revolution comes, he'll be the first to go, just to show I'm not messen' around!!! When the fish are picky, light line and a lotta' stamina are the way to go, it'll irritate the other guys to no end, but trust me, if they were on the fish you'd have nothing to say about it; I learned that from Capt. Garey Norbie (RIP), he also taught me to work the bow, typically your chum line will go towards the bow and in front of the boat, plus it gets you outta the crowd of "Rent-ta-Rodders" at the stern, less angles & tangles.
