Loaded up Redneck on Friday night to go fish a few days with some friends. Eric and Kelly from the Shogun went with us, as well as Manny (Ranchero).

We made bait in front of the old marina then headed toward Mita for an evening on the hook. Early departure for the Rock after hearing some good reports from the previous days.

Got the kite set up on the first drift and immediately the Cabbie was inhaled by a nice pargo. Great way to start the day with a 40 lb'er in the box. Not much life so we decided to drag lures to the bank. A few knock downs by stripers on the way, but otherwise pretty quiet. Nothing at the bank so back to the rock.

Made a few drifts for 3 nice dorado to 30 lbs. and 3 YFT's up to 80 lbs. A great day, so back to the point we headed for dinner at Margaritas with the Martuni crew.

Since the bite was late, we opted to sleep in and leave the anchorage at 10 am on Sunday. Arriving at the rock about 1pm we set the kite and immediately get bit. An 80 lber hits the deck shortly thereafter. From there on it was mayhem.

The next drift we get a double then a single. Two more 60 - 80 lbers and a 130. We reset and get a 115 lber. We reset again and land a 120.

Not bad for a few hours fishing. Time to head for the barn. We had a great crew and great fishing. It was a pleasure having Manny along, especially since he got a haircut. He works the cockpit like a champ. You're welcome anytime compa.

Final count for two days: 9 tuna (60 -130 lbs), 3 dodo's and 1 pargo.

Check out Manny's new haircut and Kelly crouching over the dead carcas and eating sushi. Manny jumping out of the way of a thrashing dodo (pussy). Maverick doing his best James Dean impression.

Awesome, Brant.

You need to train Maverick to put the death bite on those pesky dodos that flop around the deck.

Pinche Manny I barely recognized you compa. Nice job on the tunas and the dodos, they all look tasty. Bogii's not going to be happy with you, he's been wanting to cut your hair since the BD Tuna Challenge back in Agosto. Say hi to Juan and everybody and tell Juan I hope all goes well with getting Top Gun fixed.

Brant your on fire lately, taking another dent out of the tuna population at the rock. Say hi to Kari, Maverick and Palomino for me. Hope you had a good birthday too.
