Great report! Wahoo bites can be crazy - amazing to see what all happens in the middle of one of those. Incredible effort by the crew to get the line cut and retied on that wahoo. Good on you for putting it on the deck.

I've had that "cut you out of the tangle" deal before. It's kind of funny as it was one of the crew members, Cameron, who got the honor of holding the fish while Brian tied the knot. It was about a buck forty Yellowfin at Clarion and 100 lb solid spectra. Good news, the knot held. :)

They did the same thing later in our trip on a 140 lb. YFT with Brian holding on the whole time.

If you look close you can see Cameron and Ray in my avatar. 2014 trip.

Got it. Spelling has never been my strong suit. Now I have seen some folk who wined a lot in the evening after dinner.

Thanks for the report. I was there when you guys came in, and left on the Kens Custom Reels trip the next day. You guys did "put the wood" to them. Again GREAT report, I wish I could remember that well, and write as well as you do. I will probably see you when you come in again in 2016. Tight lines.........:-)

Kevin,

Thanks.

Would be nice to meet you on the dock. I did not get a chance to chat with anyone this year as I was busy pushing carts up the ramp and helping other anglers with their fish. When I got done most everyone was gone.

Best of luck on your next trip.
