still workin on that part
I know everyone is "high" on BFT but I just thought I'd share some recent success. I got lucky and shot a fish of a lifetime last week or so out at one of our local islands. 18 feet of water 46 inches and 45 lbs.
I got lucky after 15 total hours of pounding sand, broken up over 5 days. I didn't know how big she was until i got to shore.

Nice score!

I'm probably crazy and dead wrong asking this, but were you possibly at SeaWorld yesterday evening with a little girl? I showed this big halibut picture to my daughter right before she was going to bed and she said "Dad, that guy was at SeaWorld yesterday!" Me and my girls were there, and now that she mentioned it, we all swear we think we saw you??

Congrats again on the trophy Flattie!!

The unknown fisherman:p:
