Hey guys thought I would share a few pictures from me and my buddies recent trip on the shogun, it was a blast. Caught a ton of yt kept 15 myself and released quite a few smaller ones less than 10lbs and the seals got a few as well. The iron was the hot ticket for the yt and we caught pretty much everything else on bait. Got into a big flurry of cudas and bonita, I had a cuda right next to the boat with alittle tension on the line he threw the jig and if you look at the pictures you'll see where it landed. Captain Aaron was able to pull it out in a hurry and I was back fishing in about 5 minutes. In the end everyone caught alot of fish one guy caught a dorado and another a bft there were also 3 wsb and 3 halibut caught aswell.

A couple of other four letter words come to mind.

Did they give you a jig to bite on or use a local anesthetic and a scalpel?

Captain Arron rigged the hook up with some 200lb spectra and did the line method and jerked it out. Looks nasty and bruised up pretty good but all wad well and it didn't hinder my fishing ability.

YT along with some real good eating bottom dwellers... truly can't beat that for this time of the year! Those trebles can be real nasty to humans just like they are to the fish... glad everything worked out and you were still able to fish and get your share. Thanks for posting.
