I invited a chick to come out and was schedualed to pick her up at the dock at 0900 (big mistake) . She showed up at 0730 right in the middle of the bite. Made her wait till 0900 when the sun came out and the bite kinda died.
We got to Dana at 0900 and it was kinda good we needed more ice and beer anyways. Headed back out and when we got back we didn't find anything on the meter. They just disappeared. Couldn't find them anywhere. It was a lil rough and she got seasick so we drifted around the NW coroner trying to preserve gas. Around 1430 right off our bow YT start crashing and they are coming strait for us. Didn't have to do anything. Slung a jig right into the middle of them. Got bit right away but didn't hook it. Then maybe 10ft from the boat I watched 3 good size yellows fight over my jig. Bam the bigger one compleatly inhaled it. Had the fish on the boat in 2 mins.
We decided to get a hotel and do it again in the morning be off the water by 0900. We'll that was the plan at least. We launched at 0430 and within 5 mins of trolling we got our first hookup. Didn't stick but I knew it was something big. Kept trucking north, but something told me to go back to the edge of the grounds where I originally got bit so I turned around and as soon as I hit the same spot boom we were on again. 2.5 hour fight on 60lb test. Had to call my mom and tell her I was going to miss her mother day lunch ( I had a 2 hour drive home) she understood when I FaceTime her and saw the pole compleatly bent! She said It was ok but she said I better land that fish. Thresher went 168.8 lb on the Dana scale.
