    A very quite day, only 1 hit. Then in 400ft at 1:00 port rigger pops and line begins to scream out of a Penn 330 w/30lb mono with a red/white skirted rigged ballyhoo. Did not want to horse it in because of the light tackle, 2 hours 45 min later we finally get it in. Line was wrapped on bill pretty well and the double hooks were set deep in the bottom jaw so we pulled in to clear, photo then released.

    awesome catch. go canes.
    But if you only have love for your own race
    Then you only leave space to discriminate
    And to discriminate only generates hate
    And when you hate then you're bound to get irate

    great catch! You had no choice but to bring him in, being the way he was hooked and line wrapped around his bill. But after almost 3 hr fight and being brought in I sure hope he lived, wouldn't give him a lot of hope. But you had no choice, congratulations. I'm jealous!!
