Default Fat Girl

The name says it all. This fatty picked up a big King head with a 20/0 hook from 300 yards out near the Portofino condos. It measured 7'10" and put up a 50 minute fight, which my buddy and I split. She wrestled like an alligator on the shore, making things sporty.

We also managed a 6' bull shortly after.

Gear: Penn Senator 9/0, 10' #280 braided wire, 25' weed eater, 250 yards #120 mono, 600 yards of braid.

All in all, we were excited to be on the water for the first time in 2 months.
