    Congrats to you and your buddy!! I hope your buddy remembered to return the jig and thank the guy (maybe reward him?), and pay it forward in the future!!

    I remember cranking my 113H on an Isla Guadalupe 92 pound YFT; side plates got super hot and started experiencing drag fade! And that fight was way less than two hours.

    Thanks man!
    He did try to return the jig but that guy told him to keep it . Super cool guy.
    He did give the guy a huge bag of fillets.

    Pay it forward is a must . We need more ppl like him in this community.

    Dude his reel was getting super hot too! Deckhand had to get a cup of cold water and rinse the reel down to cool it down .
    Fun experience all around.

    I landed a 135#YFT on a 113 with 40# in Cabo, it started smoking, we doused it with water then a couple of screws fell out of the side plate, came up tail wrapped and dead.

    Great Report!

    Nice! I went on an overnight in SD this weekend and all we found were WFO skippies. It was fun even though it wasn't the right kind. Maybe I can skip the super long car ride to SD next time and drive to San Pedro. Thanks for sharing!

    Yeah bro i was debating on either SD WFO or local BFT , glad i chose local .
    Next time keep an eye on the fish count and go on the next day . not a for sure thing but the odds are greater
