View Full Version : My first Sail

This is my first sail ever we caught it out of PC near the weather bouy. It was out of the water for less than a minute we took a few pics and let it go. It was first fish we caught we were on cloud nine the rest of the day. :Rockon

Congrats... I was wondering if you caught on live bait or trolling?

I was running about 3 knots, he popped the planer on the downrigger with a double pre-rigged ballyhoo. I had the planer down 50 foot and was just starting to put out the rest of my spread when he popped the release on the planer.

That's a beautiful fish! I hope to get one some day. I'm a taxidermist and am actually restoring one for a guy right now. It's probably from the late '50s or early '60s. Anyway, awsome pics as well. Believe it or not it's pretty hard to find good pics of them out of the water. After about an hour of searching google I managed to get a few but none as good as the one you posted.
