    Fished the PQ on 6/1 with the rest of the fleet. First two fish hooked at 6am, deep on flatfalls, both fish pulled off. Finally got a school to stick with us from 11am-3pm. Very difficult to get a bite. Most flyline fish were hooked on 40lb line and size 1/0 or 1 hooks.

    I look down the rail and see one of my buddies unbox a fresh Colt Sniper, tie it on and drop it in, after a long drop he gets bit 200ft deep. Fish is mean and takes 2 guys and the deckhands 1.5 hrs to land. Estimated 140lbs, on 50lb line and the stock treble hook, which was almost straightened out!!

    I did get bit around noon on a flyined dine, 40lb Seaguar Gold, 1/0 Charlie Brown hook. Had the fish to gaff an hr later, only to have it head shake a foot under the surface and break me off!! So lame! I drank a beer collected myself and grabbed my yo-yo kit for the next stop. 2nd school we slide into I slide back the Colt Sniper with the chum and get picked up soon after. This time I'm on 60lb leader and can pull hard. I landed that fish in under 20mins, a solid 70ish fish.

    Note...I had swapped to a Owner Jobu 7/0 hook. Kit used Phenix Axis 720XH, Andros 12NSii, 65 braid, short 60lb flouro leader.

    Final count for the day 20+ hookups, 10 fish landed 25-140lbs. Sounds like we did about the same as the rest of the fleet.

    Was it on the slide, cast to boil or just jigging at a bait stop?

    Big one was during a pick bite. Mine was on the slide.
    The crew were casting them at boils and blind casting, but that never got bit.
