Default MS Viking, a white, sail and a broke off blue!

Been dying to get offshore since our last outing three weeks ago. All of my family was busy with life, so I put together a crew of myself, friends from MS ; Barret, Herbert and his young daughter as well as perennial forum favorite Woody with his girlfriend and father David.

Plan was to fish the steps, but at last moment made the decision to run to the Jim Day rig due to Hilton’s image. Left out at 9pm and putted out all night only to find the rig gone!! Yes, they do move them! Regrouped and ran over to Horn Mt to catch the sunrise bite. At sunrise we lost a nice YF that hit a spreader bar to a broken knot, then hooked the 80 lb ish YF seen below. It hit a ballyhoo. After the fish was finally boated the sunrise bite had died.

We then trolled north and caught a white marlin on the short rigger on a Black Bart Hot Breakfast. It was Claire’s first billfish.

We made our way back to the steps and caught a sailfish on Black Bart St. Thomas Prowler (also on short rigger). Barret caught it and it was also his first billfish.

An hour later our Shotgun Islander/ballyhoo got bit. We were convinced it was a wahoo so we put Herbert and his daughter in the chair for her to catch her first “big” fish. Moments later, 20 yards behind the boat a whopper blue explodes out of the water and backflips over on the the line, breaking the line.

We were sooo close to a Slam! A white a sail and a blue! Oh well, still a great day on the water! The fish are still out there!

Great job! Slams are hard to come by. Great trip nonetheless. Pretty fish all around.

Great pic's Robert! Thanks for sharing with Erin your boat, she talked my ear off on the way home about the blue! Lifelong memory for sure. I forgot to mention but a guy on the radio said the tuna were back up at Horn at 11, I heard them talking on the radio when you were taking a rest. Chris, the tuna were there early and if you can get out this week and want nice tuna, thats where I would start. Saw 3 shrimp boats just South of there also. Water looked better at the Steps but was still nice at Horn. Hope this helps. Robert again....thanks. We enjoyed it

Outstanding trip Robert! Sorry about the Blue, a late season slam would have been just awesome! Terrific pics also! Be out there next Saturday afternoon and Sunday!
