Been trying hard all year to get some yellow sickles in the boat but no luck but heard there were some around so still kept trying. Left the ramp on Sunday at 4:30 not too many trailers had heard fishing had slowed down, but my son Jordon(12), wanted to go so thats all I needed. Went to the parking lot, I mean the can and find 8 boats floating around trying for shibis. Put out my normal moldcrafts and a couple luckly lures to try and go through the obstacle course. Not much luck, so after it started to get light decide to go hunting. As we are pulling away snag a good sized shibi, blood in the boat before 7 and we are happy. Heading straight out to who knows where get a call from Jeff who was working his way out. He said he found the porpoise on the inside and the ahi's were biting. We were 17 miles, he was 11 miles, so reel in the lines and full throttle in. By the time we get there he had boated his ahi and another boat had joined the fun. Slowed down put the spread out slowly get in and BAM, game on. Jordon on the reel and I clear lines. After an hour Jordon taps out needs a break so I get on the reel, 45 minutes later get the fish to the side of the boat and set the gaff. Spend 15 minutes trying to get the fish in the boat and then into the box to ice down. It just fit the six foot box, so I knew it was a big boy. Call Jeff tell him we are heading in not going to get gready. Pull up to scale about 11, wieghed in at 198, think they need to replace that rusty scale so I could have gotten the extra 2 pounds, but who cares, left that monkey swimming for dear life out on the water. Gotta say thanks to Jeff for the call, and Jordon next time its all you! What a great early Christmas present!
