Default 4/28, Somewhere South of Destin

Took my little CC out Saturday for a short trip to the edge area with a friend who was in town. He needed to be back by noon so we got out early and headed South. Found a little rip and started working it to the South for a while, nothing to show but a couple bobo's. Finally saw 3-4 birds working a fish and did a few circles around them, nothing. Decided to head South for a little while longer, at this point I can't believe we have not had a quality bite. I told him we were due for a good bite and not 5 seconds later the 50w starts dumping line. We start clearing lines, I finish with my side and I look over and more than half the spool is gone. I grab the reel to see if I can put a little more pressure to slow him down because we still had 2 lines out and as soon as I pick it up it goes slack. Get the lure in, which was big chugger, and found no clues as to what the culprit was. No chaffing or abrasions on the lure or leader so who knows what it was, maybe a foul hooked wahoo? Anyways, we pulled lures for a little longer and it was time to take it in. Stopped at a spot on the way in and let him pull on some red snapper and that was the day. I guess if we caught them all it wouldn't be nearly as fun...can't wait to get back out there!

Hey any day you get to play in the great outdoors and make it back safe and sound is a good day. Glad you had some action anyway.
