Default Late report from 9/2-9/3---huge wahoo

Not a real long report but I'll give the main details.

Went offshore with a customer of ours on his 335 Pursuit along with his dad and close family friend. Hit some bottom spots around yellow gravel and got some nice beeliners, scamp and a 50lb AJ. Hooked a big Sandbar Shark too that beat his dad up pretty good.

Ran south to the Spur for some swording. 8 boats out. Chatted with 4 different guys and only heard of 1 sword caught, which seems the complete opposite of the night before. Got 2 Blackfin Tuna. Trolled at sunup and headed North to the pocket of cobalt north of the Squiggles.

Hooked a 400-450lb Blue Marlin 3 times. Teased it up and fed it all 3 times and just couldn't keep a hook in there. Fish kept coming back. Got the Wahoo of a lifetime at the spur. Weighed 102lbs back at the dock, 77 inches. If she had a little more girth to her she would've pushed 110lbs or so. Was very excited to deck a 'Hoo over the century mark.

Water at he Spur was nice blue/green and got worse than a whole lot better north of the squiggles. Weedline formed about 15 miles NE of the Spur. Lots of bait on it as well.
