This is a late report from last week..So I've been wanting to get out lately but I've so busy at the store.So a couple of my customers were like come on lets go out and catch a monster,come on. So I couldnt resist and I said yes. So we boarded the (Tiburon)boat name, And headed out to 1900ft to find us a sword. After getting there the wind starts to pick up. 5.3 drift North and wind was blowing South. So I set up lines at 100/200/300/400 and then 2 flatlines 100/50.
Now this is where it gets interesting..the 50 flat line starts to let out line gentley. So after being teased by fish over and over again the 5th time would be the last for him. I start to let out line and give him all he wants until I said enough...FISH-ONNNNNN! So I pass the rod to the youngest on the boat it was his first sword (Joshua). After a long hard battle I knew this was a good size fish. 3 hours later and 20 minutes fish onboard. The fish weighed in at 310lb raw. After giving him a nice clean cut it was at 267lb of pure chow...We only filmed with an iphone so the footage was horrible so we just decided to take tons of pics
