    It was over the border for light line and picky fish or go try for the fish of a lifetime that may never be this close again in my lifetime. Its a no brainer, Clemente it is.

    I'm worked! We worked hard for this fish.

    Left oside harbor in the fog after 1'ish am with no sleep since Saturday night. Grease flat with moon lit fog for half the run. 28 knots easy peasy.

    Started to make some squid just after 4am on front side. Got about 30 pieces. Ran to the reef with still awesome conditions for the grey light bite. Worked hard but no love. Seemed a little dead and only a couple of boats.
    Gotta tip from Parker Mike on some bluefin sightings a little further up the backside (Thanks Mike) and found some life. Set up drift in a nice looking area and began deploying first 2 of 3 lines. First 2 are out and go in pole holder. Last pole getting ready for deployment and pole number 2 is bent!

    30 minutes later....it's over the rail and in the pail.


    I'm going to bed.

    On Squid J hook 85braid-60lb flouro about 150 feet deep.

    Weather turned to shit right after catching that fish so we headed home. 20160919_105217.jpg

    Good luck

    Excellent report - hard work, perseverance and lack of sleep pays off again. Damn, that makes me want to get one more shot on the larger units - too much ain't enough.

    WTF!!
    28 knots at night what a stroke !
    Obviously sounds like a new boater who doesn't have a clue until he hits something, kills someone or sinks it.

    If you've ever been out with full moon and glass at night, it's dope.

    Great report and awesome fish. Full moon and glass conditions are the only way to run at night.

    Nice fish!!! I know these fish are not leaving the squid !!! At 28 knots full moon spot lights bright sunny day. A telephone pole waterlogged from months in the water 5 inches below surface will put a almost any fiberglass boat down. Your reaction time is just not there. Or flip trying to turn at last minute. Listen to words of caution!!! Not trying to be a dick!!! But just trying to warn people. Oh things below surface won't show on radar !!!

    I love cruising on glass with a big moon!
    The sound of the hull on the water is bitchin.
    If it hasn't been a lean season, fish on deck is icing on the cake.

    Nice fish and good trip. You'll have that in your memories for the rest of your days.
    I hope I have a trip like that ahead of me.

    yep, just look through the 300 pages of inland vs. int. water detailed info and you should be able to get some really pertinent info! just really watch out for the huey p bridge lane distinctions…
