64 pound mahi off Ft. Pierce

Long time reader but have never posted before. Cleared the inlet at 6:30 with 3 buddies on Saturday. Put lines in around 180 feet and trolled due east. Came up on a slick in 450 feet and saw plenty of blackfin jumping but could not hook up. Continued east until 720 feet. Came up on some scattered weeds and plenty of fliers. Hooked up on a nice 12 pound bull, which hit a homemade yellow daisy chain with a naked bally. A nice 10 minute fight and he was in the box. We re-set the spread and circled back towards the same spot. Halfway there, we spot a short log - about 3 feet long. Trolled past it and our 64 pound friend decided to inhale my ballyhoo with the blue and white islander skirt. The fight lasts about 40 minutes until we stick the gaff in him and hoist him over the engine well - there was no way we were going to be able to bring him over the gunnel. High 5s all around and re-set. Tried to find the log but never could. Boated one more 15 pound bull at the same depth.

I have no idea how to load the pics, but I will try.

    I hope so, I want a 64 pounder for the first tournament of the season. I'll take a 34 pounder after last year's results.

    Maybe he's playing April fools joke on us all.

    Hope this is legit, and if so congrats. I know I'd find a way to figure out how to post the pics if I nabbed a 64 pounder. I have heard of two others 45+ lb bulls caught this weekend so the big slammers may be pushing through now.

    Great catch! That must have been a freakin SLOB!!! But seriously, You had three buddies on board and didn't have the man power to hoist a 64# fish over the gunnel??:huh.

    I caught a 48# bull off Ft. Pierce about 4 years ago, I can't imagine one nearly 50% larger than that one. Yours had to be 6 feet long. Would love to see a pic, I am smelling an April fools though. If not very nice job.

    Here is the steps to allow you to post pictures into your FS Forum post:

    Set-up a Photobucket account (http://photobucket.com/) , it is free
    Once account is set-up, upload your pictures onto that site.
    Open up your fishing report into another window so you have it, and Photobucket open.
    Slide your mouse over the picture and gear appears in the upper righthand corner.
    Slide your mouse over the Gear and a drop down window appears.
    Slide the mouse down and click "Get Links"
    Slide the mouse down and select the "IMG Code"
    Go to your fishing report and click in the area where you want to put your picture.
    Now right click and paste the "IMG CODE" into your post.
    Repeat these steps for each picture you want to post.
    ALWAYSFORWARD, NEVER STRAIGHT...

    nice how big was that one and where did you catch it. Looks like you might be on a sailboat.
  • hookedcookhookedcook Posts: 17 Greenhorn
    Both were caught in the Bahamas. Never weighed them. I'm 6'1", any guesses of aproximate weight? The one in the small pic ate 2 lures! One was off a yacht and the pic with 2 is off a sailboat. There starting to show up here pretty thick, hopefully heading out in the morning!
