Got to Dana landing around 1:30pm on Sunday, got a full scoop of nice deans and headed out of the harbor about 2:00pm. Nice slow ride down to the grounds south west of the Coronado's. We arrive to the party at about 4:30 pm and set up with all the long range, overnight and private boats, everyone was spread apart nicely as there seemed be fish all over the area and birds working in all directions. We started to chum a little and had three rods in the water. Two on fly lined with 40 and I had a spinner with 65lb braid to 80lb leader 6 oz sinker. The 0nly reason I picked that setup was if have not been able to land a bigger BF on a spinner. 15 minutes later the sinker gets bit and 30 minutes later fish is at color and appears to be well over a hundred, he doesn't like the look of the boat and takes hundred yards of line and my right arm is cramping up now so I hand off to my kid and he put a lot of pressure on the fish and now the reel won't turn unless there's zero pressure, so he starts the pull with rod tip in the water all the way behind his head and gets maybe two cranks with no pressure at all. Now the fish is 20' from the boat with drag maxed out, he pulls hard and the rod snaps just above the reel, we are now totally F,ed! One last effort to wrap the bait net handle around the line to hold the fish while I tie a uni to an 80lb rig, b and but fish was too strong and chewed through the leader. Next 2 hours would produce 3 more hook ups on bigger models using 40 and 50 but all of them chewed through the line, should have used circle hooks. The next morning the water temp dropped to 61 from almost 64 and everyone was driving around looking for fish. We started heading back around noon and found a nice paddy that my buddy Gregg pulled a YT off of that served as a sashimi lunch. Still a great time on the water but hopefully better luck next time.
