Haha I know dude!!

Does any of this below sound familiar!? LOL

I wish I could have videoed mine from last week. When mine hit I was eating a sandwich and that thing went flying to space! I knew immediately it was a hoo, and my adrenaline was off the charts with that fish!

I was talking to myself out loud from the very beginning of the fight, and saying "Dont blow this mike, you've got your hoo, don't mess this up...... keep it tight" all while being in hyped up overdrive.

When I first got that thing to the boat in about 6 minutes I thought she was mine, but when I reached out with one hand to gaff it, that SOB had other plans, and the whole game took a change as she dogged me hard and dove down deep and fought like a badass tuna. I came real close to losing mine a few times...... real close, and those last 5 minutes of the fight were nuts!

Really stoked you got it Bill, congrats again!!

    Man, what is up with the 4th day being the ticket?

    We had more than 300 miles over a three day period and on day four, BAM!

    Congratulations on the fish and not giving up on the mission.
