    persistence pays off. Fished with a awesome team today, billy k and Barnes cooper.
    We stuck to our game plan and was rewarded with my boat first cow bft.
    Stuck this one on a tiagra 50, fight time around 1hr.
    Taped at 240 ish. Maybe more.

    We got this guy around the 209 area on a flying mackerel.
    Once you located these fish on the meter, there is no need to boat around and waste gas up and down the coast to find that national geographic scene.
    Shut down, slow troll, drift your bait.
    Theses fishes are not swimming at 100 mph per hours, they usually stick to a 1 or 2 square miles area.
    We are by no mean expert, but starting to figure out their pattern.
    It was full of crab, so enticing them to eat a fast moving mackerel can be daunting.
    Good luck peeps

    robert, it was a team work thing, I hooked the fish and we pass the rod only a few short time, then The Bald guy went to work. Boat maneuvering is critical and yes pull hard don't get into the tug of war stand off. Bring the right gear, I have boated my share of big yft and these Cow should not take more than 1 hour to boat.
    Don't bring a butter knife to a gun battle.
    Tackle was tiagra 50, with 200lb leader. Even with 135 leader we would boated this guy under 2 hrs.
