    Sorry for this being a little late had to do dinner with family right after we got back.

    Plan was Gus and his wife Karen fishing with me and my good friend Caesar fishing with his friends son Ian and Ed the "lingcodkillingmotherfucker". If you don't know who Ed is then you haven't been on BD long enough.

    Made it down to the ramp around 6:30am, Ceasar was already in the water and headed out. We launch and start soon after. We then see Caesar just putting along. We pull up aside and as WTF. His engine was overheating and kept going into limp mode.

    I wasn't going to let the ruin the day, told him to go back to the ramp, trailer the boat and hop in the Papa "J".

    Was mostly flat and was able to do about 20KTS straight into it. got to our numbers and hit a couple nice drops. after an hour or so the wind stared picking up to the point that the boat was drifting 1.5-2kts. Had to have the guys drop on the spot and just keep it in gear it they got close to bottom then pop in neutral to drift back over. did ok a few time doing that.

    Then as we were getting back to one of our spots we notices a nice little honey hole and did our same move. And we wrecked it. Hadn't seen that size quality reds in a while. By that time the wind laid down a bit and we were able to fish it. It was crazy every drop doubles on every line.

    Had a great day with great friends and super quality fish. One for the BD history books.

    Great job! Quality reds are getting harder to come by. What was the hot bait? Live squid, strips, fin bait, jigs?

    West of the Mississippi and north of the equator. Got it. Next time I see a GW sailfish expect to see a marlin following you.
