Default MBGFC "Breathe Reel Deep"

We had a good tournament this past weekend. Saturday was a little slow. We managed to come across a pallet and catch a couple of wahoo and dolphin. Later that day we raised a pair of whites that manged to make us look silly. By the end of the day on Sat we had fished from the Ram to the Steps, Elbow, dumping grounds and the Spur. Fishing to the west and south sounded slow over the VHF so the decision was made to work our way to a small break south of the squiggles.

After paddling most of the night we were set up to work our way back west the next day. We put baits back in the water at zero dark thirty and started working the slitely cooler piece water. Around 8am we started raising fish. In total we raised seven fish on Sunday and caught two.

We released a white on Big Lena and a big blue 500 plus on a pitch.
The blue came completely across the spread and demolished Big 19 behind a squid chain. Taking my chain and 19 with him. He swung back around and we switched him over on meat 15ft off the transom. It was an awesome bite.
We had plans on taking the fish, but broke him off on the leader instead. That turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Because that fish tied for first place Tag and Release.
Sorry we did not take any pics.

So you broke the leader after you tagged the fish?

You don't have to tag the fish. But we did break the leader.

I can't remember ever NOT raising fish at the Squiggles. I love fishing that area. Congrats!

Makes for better stories without pictures. But raising 7 billfish is pretty damn good. Well done.
