Fished the N. 9 today, north wind early, no real swell. Was trolling a blue Xrap 40' and a cedar plug headed south, got SLAMMED and looked back, the rod had got hit so hard, it pulled the rod holder out screws and all! Keep an eye out for a BIG tuna with a TLD30 and a black broomstick troller as bling. Could not believe how hard it hit, thought a boat hit me! Thought I had the drag loose enough..Guess not! Not much else happening on the 9, 2 dry patties, wind came up big. Wet ride home.
