FP - Stuart Report 5/23

Cleared the FP TCBA checkout at 6:15AM and headed South. Lots of life in 65' so we lowered the riggers and started trolling. First knock-down was at 7:20 small gaffer fin.. reset and continued to work a rip South. 2nd knock-down shortly after spooled us before we could get control.. We were able to regain about 50 yards and then spooled again but this time it came with a unwelcoming pop... still scratching my head on that one... The bite slowed so we decided to change up and run North for a bottom bite with hopes of a mutton to weigh in... on the hook in 70' when a nice bull swims in, tossed in a live cigar and we were tight... Worked him in and picked up a cow as well. As we were settling down from the action i noticed a dark blob behind the boat.. as it got closer i realized it was a sail and we were tight again... Great day on the water with my family and friends with most of the action post tournament. Probably one of our best days! First sail while on the hook!!!
