How many did you hook? We were 20 miles west of you. Started to make the run after you called it in and realize we probably have been cutting it too close on fuel to go that far out of the way so we worked both instead. Saw some more of those big ones up the line tho

Congrats on a great catch!!!

Any members reading this that were on a sport boat when the news came in? Just curious. I know Capt.s aren't going to run every time a report comes in but the sh!t talk shows no class.

Awesome day for you and crew!

Victory is ours (this time!)

Got invited to fish on my friend's 26' striper. Launched from SI at 12am. The plan was make baits and make a long trip to the 295 for an afternoon bites. Took us 3 hrs to make about 50 pieces. Slow cruised out to our destination at 16 knts. By grey light we're just west of the Upper Finger. Found a massive pod of jumping dolphins and diving birds. Put the trollers in and within 20 mins my troller went of. I've never seen my Tyrnos 30 dumped so much line in so little time, the spool was literally emptied in 15 seconds. Let's say there are at least 7-8 monsters BF swimming out there with a metal dental floss stuck to theirs mouths. All of our setups were 40 lb or less except for the troll gears, with the Tyrnos 30 being the biggest. By around 11am we had 3 monster BFs onboard. Lost the pod and couldn't find another pod until 12??? Picked another 8 smaller BFs, 2 huge bones and called it a day around 1:30 as we're out of ice. The last jig stop was 32.08x117.07. We're by ourselves the whole time. No other boats were sighted. And BTW, not a single bait or Megabait fish on the slide.
Salute and out.
