Got a chance to jump on an open party charter with Capt. Evan Salvay on The Hawk. We started our morning instantly seeing signs of life, with multiple foamers all over the place. Fish were extremely skittish to the start the day off and we spent the early morning running/gunning with no luck.

A switch flipped around 9:30/10 and it went full on national geographic. We were able to put 6 fish on the boat over a hundred with a few more in the 60/70 lb range. All fish were caught on the popper/orca and it was the single best day of fishing I have ever head.

Evan is an absolute legend and does whatever it takes to put you on fish. Will definitely be getting out with him again soon.

I was lucky enough to get a 118# on the Halco Popper, 909XHJ, Tranx HG, 80# spectra, 60# leader.

Local fishing will never be the same, this day ruined it for me.

What a pig, congratulations! Can't think of a more exciting fish to chase and you managed to put the wood to a real monster and land one.

Stoked for you, enjoy the rush that comes with a fish of a lifetime, and yes, ruined for life is an understatement!
