    Sorry for the late post guys

    Short story went out last week out of mission on my buddy's sick pilot house

    Put 3 fish on the deck with no boats around us all in US waters stopped on 3 foamers first one holding the big boys
    My buddy landed his popper in the middle and it was on for 20 minutes he kicked the fishes ass and on the deck
    85 braid to 100# top shot
    Second stop was on the sword ate a Mack on 50# About 2 hrs it was tail dragging time

    110lb BF
    Swordfish
    And a small YF

    We did over 90 miles on his gps

    Good luck and get out there and find the fish

    Amazing. 90 mile roundtrip puts many boats in that range. Can't wait to get back out there.

    Congrats
