AWESOME fishing and variety 1/25(6) LWI

Did a trip Wed AM for Mr M. Sent him to Lott Bros and he bought a pair of pimp bottom rods.
Took him to one of my spots and first drop was a STUD Mutton. Next drop was a flag tail.

Moved outside and started fishing some live bait, while prospecting the bottom.
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ holy smokes Mickey got a HUGE SMOKER, then another, and a few snakes too.
Not having a king permit, we just kept 2, and released several, feeling good about being "conservation minded". Of the 2 we kept, the biggest smoker (about 40lbs) went to Gerald and Unitarian church for their fellowship. Gerald has a kick *** smoker, nothing goes to waste. We also gave one to deck hands at Loggerhead, since they do a GREAT job, and are appreciated!!

Rest the flat and a HUGE sail is dancing towards the bow. After 20 minutes of give and take and spectacular leads , we let her go. BAM, he's on again, landing 4 more keeper muttons.

He said it was one of the best days of his life. He broke in the drags on new Torium 20's w pinke Ande real good. The sail and kings even burned his thumb a bit! LOL (#tried to warn him!)
He went home tired and proud, after docking the boat like a boss w a full box!~

I got some video of sail etc, but just doing quick report, cleaning yp, rigging for tomorrow and bed by 9.
E$=E-sleeepy. Oh today the sail that ate flat charged the boat also when it realized something was amiss. This one actually glanced off the hull and left a bill mark in gelcoat. I swear to god it nearly jumped in the boat. I saw leader go by by head and instivley DUCKED, but also got the leader touch. [email protected]!

Very wide variety for his past 3 days !1 (Sails, Wahoo,Kings, Mutton, Yellowtail, Porgy, AP etc etc)

Prolly hit it again in the AM and keep ya posted. Bob is having Mutton tacos!!
