Default MSviking Fri 19th choppy day at the Spur

Having seen all the recent reports I was dying to get out to the Spur last week. Weather made Saturday look dicey at best we chose to go Friday. Short crew of just myself, Barret and Herb (Superchicken) due to last minute schedule.

Forecast said 1-2 Friday early with 2-3 later in the day on NOAA, Bouyweather.com had <1 early with 2-4 later.

They were WRONG! See the bouy data below, honest 7' seas and 30+knts of wind for around 2 hours!

We still managed 3 tuna, 1 record WeeHoo, a nice cow dolphin and lost a mystery billfish that mangled lure and leader like I have never seen before! The tuna were nothing to write home about, but nice, I would have taken pics but I could not stand up!

This was mid day at the Spur, believe it or not we were trolling!

The WeeHoo


The Cow


Barret doing an amazing job of single handedly wiring and gaffing the cow


42040 Wave height showing 7 footers


Boat handled it fine, but this is an example how how the weatherman can be wrong and why you should always know your boat and it's limitations.

Wow, hardcore! Mighty studly 'fin! I would have dropped that weehoo back on a hook! Or taken him home for my fish tank.

And yes, it got real sloppy out there Friday. On a 14ft piece of plastic in solid 3ft wind chop it was interesting trying to lean over and revive that sailfish with out turtling the yak!

Way to make it happen out there, and Nice report. The only two knockdowns we got were when it started getting sloppy late morning.... Looks like we should have stuck around lol. Props to you guys for sure, because it was hard to stand up...Let alone fight fish and wire/gaff them single handedly! Well done sirs!

Looks rather sporty, and proof that all boats are wet when mother nature wants them to be. Great job on all the fish, I want to look you up one of these days just to see the boat up close, she is a beauty.
