BBI Wahoo...Finally

Out of Boynton this morning just before first light. We had decided to troll fairly big baits in hopes of maybe a hoo. We had a big strip on a red/black Islander down deep on a No. 6 planer, a horse ballyhoo with another Islander behind a 24 oz lead, a mullet and another strip on top. We started directly in front of the inlet and did the wahoo shuffle, out to 250 and back in to 90, heading north. About a half mile north of the inlet in 150-180' the planer tripped and the 50 Intl' started singing. It was roughly 15 min or so and we got the planer to the rod and began hand lining that 60' 250# leader... very nerve wracking as you all know. But, we got a good gaff shot and put a nice lil hoo, about 30-35 lbs in the box. Back to the dock, boat and fish cleaned by 9:30. Not a bad way to spend the morning.
