Default Finally!!

300hp Yamaha: $25k
Bags of lures: $more than i want my wife to see...
Rods and reels: $plead the fifth
Radar: $2k
Bottle of bourbon: $200
ER trip: $Waiting on bill
Getting the first billfish ever to our boat and the first billfish for Joeey in his life:PRICELESS!!

Quote of the trip: Al to Joeey when Joeey realized it was a two speed reel and dropped it down into low: Like a 2 dollar whore on nickel Sunday!!

Headed out of NAS Sunday am around 4:30. Went to nipple, lines in at sun up.
Green water. Turned blue as we headed a bit further south.

TUrned toward elbow and decided to run it up into the shallows and see if anyone was hungry on the edge. Had what we think was a white pick up the menu and give it a hard look, but he did not order.

Headed towards spur. Water beautiful. But no weed lines, no grass mats, VERY little weed anywhere, very little flying fish (the ones we saw were HUGE though)

We were having a great day out on the water for our first trip out for the year. Just no fish. Swapped out lures at spur as we set the autopilot north towards home but still had a few hours of trolling on the way in. I gave Brandon a choice of three lures for the long line- he picked this crazy pink mold raft so we hook it up behind a bird and send it out for battle.

WIthin an hour BAM!!! 80 wide long line makes that beautiful sound that we have missed these past cold months! 11 minutes later we’ve got ole whitey next to the boat- we thought it was a tuna at first or a hoo- no aerial show. Seemed to just head down. When Al was getting ready to gaff he looks up with a grin and tells me he cannot gaff this one- of course i ask why the heck not And as I look over the gun whale I see this beautiful bill!!

Great day.

That night I was home in the driveway climbing up to the tower with a water hose and missed what I was grabbing for and fell off the boat and onto the concrete driveway. It was a good thing I broke my fall with my face. Thanks to the firs responders and ER docs at Sacred heart- EVERYONE was wonderful and I appreciate what all of you do.

Hope you like the video.

WIll try all over again this coming weekend. Now we need ole blue!!

Beautiful fish.

We caught the first blue off my boat a couple of years ago and it never jumped...but it was quite large. Caught a white last summer and it put on quite a show.
