    3/31 & 4/1 Daytiming With The HOOKER BIG FISH

    Fished Saturday with Billy, had a couple bites early but didnt get tight... Picked up and moved a bit ....We downed a REEL ADRENALINE and 20 minutes later were tight....Fish is boatside within 20 minutes, Billy AKA Top Dawg hits her with a poon and we've got an estimated 250+ on the deck...... Good thing the fish didnt drink a Reel Adrenaline or we would have had a longer fight...LOL

    Fished Sunday with my buddy from Tampa..... Went half of the day without a bite.... picked up and moved and again we get tight....pull the hook 5 minutes into it..... Run back and drop again...fish plays with it for a bit then nothing....I figured i lost my bait.... kept it down but started rigging another bait..... then my buddy says i think were getting a ........... BITE....... Tight as a titty....... she pulls a couple hundred feet or so then starts coming up...weight off within 20 minutes.... Played tug a war with her but she kept staying down couple hundred feet... finally she comes up and we see her...nice fish......few more round robins and I stick her with a poon....then she takes off again taking all the line and bouy with her.... few more minutes and we stick her with a gaff.. Now comes the fun part...only Mark and myself on board so I call some friends over ...Blue Boat to the rescue..... Tom jumps on board and we yank her in but shes stuck ... little help from Don to roll her and in she comes.....guestimated at 500+ lbs.... ken got some great pics for us......I'll have Tom upload when he can.....Tightlines!!!
    I love My Hooker!!!!

    What an addiction, when I lived in Broward Dade as a kid they where plentful. Nice fish and there will be some good meals with a good story being told at that dinner.
