Reel Thing

Cappy, Sparky & I snuck off on the Reel Thing on Friday, 08.19.11, to see what we could stir up offshore of Sebastian. Action all day, mostly cuda & bonita, but we did drag one 18lb Phin (175') in. We "released" a 30lb+ Hoo (200') when "the Gaffer", who shall remain anonymous, went to stick the Hoo, he slipped and got a little past parallel with the water as he rolled over the gunnel. He was saved from taking a dip, but at the expense of a nice fish. Oh well, you win some you lose some, but it stings a little more when it is a Hoo.

The big jellyfish were everywhere, several shrimp boats anchored up and not much of any weedlines worth mentioning. All in all, nice to be out again. First trip since our 5 days on the other side at Rosies a month ago.


Hitting it hard again in about 5 hrs...
