    I can relate to the shitty feeling of being in a slump and how great it feels to come out of one by putting fish on ice. I just came out of a slump this past Saturday with a couple of Dorado and a Yellowfin, but you guys really hit it out of the park on your slumpbuster.

    Way to hang in there and work through the obstacles presented. Nothing like grease conditions to make it easier to find paddies and surface action. Certainly better than trying to find 'em when the wind is up.

    Those Yellowtail and the Dodo bird are legit, with 2 solid Yellowfin to top. Fantastic for you and your buddies. Really enjoyed the read and agree that the macks are gonna give you a better chance on the paddies right now. My favorite pic is #11.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    Nice Catch. To avoid any future bad luck, you may want to move that popper outfit to a different rod holder where the hook won't catch a leg. :)
