Default Another spur report 9/27

Trolled from the spur to the dumping grouds. Found a shrimp boat pulling, hooked up 3 (prob small blck fin) and lost them all. Finally picked up a 45# wahoo in open water. Trolled back over the MOB and past a log with about 20 nice triple tail and quickly picked up 3 more nice hooters off of it in the 25-40# range. Other than that pretty slow all day. No bills but great day on the water and got to bring some meat home this time. Also one small dolphin. Good crew and good fish!!! Ben did go to the ER when we got home. When he gaffed a wahoo and it slid off into his big toe on the release. 9 stitches.

We never could find the log again. We searched forever trying to find it and circled the spot but nothing. Trust me, I would have loved to bring a couple of those things home tho.

Good trip. We you catch wahoo off of logs are you casting for them or trolling by the log repeatedly?

Trolled back around the log. Never got a chance to throw at it.

Nice trip! Sucks about the toe, though.

Awesome report, cant beat wahoo steaks.....I carry a marker buoy for just such occasions after the same thing happened to me but I will probably just lose it if I ever get the chance to use it.

Still a good day!

The biggest one is the one that got me 40-45lbs. I know that crocs aren't steel toes but that was through my croc. I've gaffed hundreds of these things and never had one come off the gaff and go after me like that. hit so hard and fast I didn'y think I was cut at first... Suckers are bad! I'll never again wonder how the can clip a leader so quick! Funny thing is we caught him on a cedar plug rigged on 100lb leader.

And yes it was the first fish we caught that got me. But I was going to the ER any way and it was going to be a few hours before we got there...why not get some revenge on his kin! The joke is I guess they were biting that day!

I wish I had a camera when we got to the ER and I told them I was bit by a fish. They didn't believe me until we pulled off the electrical tape wrap job and I sprayed blood all over the lobby

Nice ER post! Good thing he did not get you under the toe and take one of the tendons. Andrews Institute would have appreciated the business! I definitely respect the fact that you kept on fishing and took no prisoners of war! You defeated the enemy! Bet the toe started "talking" to you later that evening! Almost munched that part of it completely off!
