Default Today's Fishing

We started trolling south of the Oriskany and headed SW to the blue water. After a few minutes with lines in we choked on a Wahoo. 2 More hours go by with our Wahoo fishing and a nice YFT is on one of the smaller Zoruri Bonita baits. It took a while to get him to the boat and it was at least a 50 pounder. Fingered the wind on and the damn welded ring on the ball bearing swivel breaks..!! I wish we had a harpoon..!!

Nothing much on the troll so we stop and get one nice Amberjack and a bonus 40 lb. Cobia.

Damn! You don't see one breaking like that very often. Those days happen unfortunately but at least you got out to the blue water and still brought back some nice fish

Chris it was a heart breaker for sure. Especially when the fish is "right there" ready to gaff.

The Cobia was caught with the rainbow colored 10 oz. Squidtail Lure made over your way.

Dang sucks about the yft. How was the grass situation? Last week in that area it was pretty scattered and there was a lot of line clearing going on.

The grass is mess closer to the edge now. Any further south and it cleared up. No lines have formed. From the Oriskany to the 131 and further west was clear.

Thanks for the report and least you came home with something. Had the same thing happen to me on a Braid marauder. Sent it back to Braid and they welded on a new ring and hook. Would definitely suggest sending it back so they know how the quality of their products stand up.

OM That sounds like something that would happen to me. Sorry to hear it but at least you brought a couple in. I would have never thought that would have broke!!

You'll get him next time.

Max drag was set at 13 lbs. It must have been a bad weld on the ring. Next time I'm bringing my Tuna spreaders to use on top..!!
