Default Big Blue

Haven't fished much lately, haven't posted in longer. Planned a trip to leave friday at noon, everything on shedule, everyone on the boat on time. Fire up gen, strbrd, uhhh no fire on port. Check everything, try again...nothin. Owner calls mechanic, no answer, eyeball mechanic a while longer, call mechanic, mechanic finally calls back. Pull cyllenoid(sp) off, fires up, but only way to shut her down is stick finger in the hole to block fuel...ok. Head south 3 hours behind. Put 2 wahoos and an AJ in the boat that afternoon. Put sword baits in at 9:30 have a bite within minutes, put a 60# yft in boat, then a little bft. Bite dies with moonrise, at 5:00 am get bit, put 175# sword in the boat.
Start the troll, pick up a mahi, lose another, get to the kegs NE of spur, hook 2 yft on live baits on spin, fight for an hour only to pull hooks. Put in plastics and headed east. Crossed a line from blue/green to green/blue. Shortly after, short left gets crushed. Fish is dumping 50 with 23# of drag like nothing, lines aren't half way cleared, turn and run after while clearing. Get half the spool back. Settle in, and pretty sure what we got, but staying down. First angler tags out and while harnessing the second fish starts tailwalking a couple hundred yds out, bill and head are thick, for sure 5 tubs. Goes down, along with angler shortly after. the owner is up now, he gets it to the bimini, twice in about 30 min., fish sounds, angler out. Seas go from calm to choppy during the fight, bust the swim platform off backing into seas, it sinks, thankfully, I hated that thing. Now we do some serious backing. I'm the reluctant 7th angler, make some progress, get the bimini on the reel. Dump the rod off to my dad again, and get ready to wire. Keep the bimini on reel and storm her, staying all over her. Finally got her up and running, she comes out going away, 2' thick across the back, and long, easily 7-800. After 3 hours of 23# of standup and 8 angler changes, I get the wire. Ended up breaking 500 when she surged, and she swam away clean. Very greatful to have the oppurtunity to do battle with such an awesome creature. Fortunate to have my best freind since childhood, driving, his dad, the owner and mine on the boat, plus three others for their first offshore trip...they may be a little jaded now. If ya'll aren't pulling a rainbow super chugger on your short rigger, you're missing out. The cheapest lure, and gets eaten more than any other. Chandler has pics and video, maybe he'll put something up.
