5/24/12 Dry Tortugas on the Yankee Capts
Then I hooked into a beast from the deep and had a battle that took its tole on me for a while. I got it about half way up and it decided it was further from the bottom than it liked and headed back down. It was determined to get back to the bottom and i was determined to get it to the boat. After a long battle I won and the 43# Cubera was boated. It turned out to be the pool winner for the biggest Snapper and biggest over all.
My next drop hooked up to a AJ that took most of the energy I had left, but it will make some great dip that the new friends in Wi. will enjoy.
Next was my sons first Mutton, a nice 19 pounder.
Over the trip we cought some nice fish and the sharks took there share of fish and maybe more that there share at some stops. I am sitting here with aching arms and shoulders, my mind is in a state of lag due to the lack of sleep, it was another punishing trip but nothing puts a smile on my face like a good trip on the Yankee. Thanks to Capt. Greg and crew for another great trip and thanks to Mike for putting the trip together. We had a blast and will be back again
