A 7 YEAR BATTLE FINALLY CAME INTO AN END (40 POUND PACU CAUGHT IN MIAMI)

After multiple hook ups, break offs, frustration, patience, long mornings, and perseverance I finally caught the fish that drove me to fish everyday for the past 7 years. I could now cross this 40 pound stud of a Pacu of my list. Definitely a bucket list experience

*Released safely and healthy*

    The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.
