Default Bow Down Bud Light Report!

Well we had a good day on the water with very few mishaps(which is a first:doh)! We ran S/SW about 40miles to our first stop on some rocks/structure and the first two baits we putin the waterwe hooked up but they ended up being small kings. After about an hour and no more activity we ran to the west about 40 miles and fished some more rocks/structure and caught some more small kings and two barley legal AJ's. We then ran south to a rig and caught some bait and while we were catching bait we caught a king around 20# so decided to go ahead and fish instead of catching more bait. so we pull off the rig a little and get our spreadready the next thing i know i hear @#%# so i turn around to see my brother hand lining our downrigger ball up from 200ft+....:banghead So now we our down to one downrigger andthe next hour and a half was awesome, we caught a couple of smaller kings around 10#'s then caught a couple around 20#'s, we looked at each other and had a feeling that the bite was getting hot andwe only had one downrigger(we were catching them about 40 ft down). well sure enough we pull up to the rig again and bam 32# king, after boating him we pull up to the rig and bam 37# king pull up the rig again and bam 39# king, we are thinking the big boy is about to eat and we pull up again and bam 41# king, after that one we caught a hammer head about 6 ft and the bite turned off. We stayed there for about an hour and nothing but sharks, so we packed it up and cruised to the NE. We ended up with a 41.78 for 5th place, we had a fun day on the water and we took a rookie kingfisherman who ended up catching the 41. I want to thank mark, mark, and chris fortaking care of a situation i had and they handled it with class! i do have a few shortvideos i will post of the start and of the hammerhead being caught later. thanks to Maxwells wife for taking picsof us at the scales.

PS we also snapped an antenna(vhf) we could hear people but they could not hear us!:banghead

congrats Doug as well as the rest of the Bow Down crew! I saw little McCoy on Sat night and I see why you didn't want to tell me who the 5th crewmember was since he was a ringer!!! Good Job though guys, hard work has started to pay off for you guys!

thanks mike!

Creighton, I didn't tell you who the fifth angler was because i did not know his name just he had fished with Brandon before and knew what he was doing. Having Josh on board was a pleasure he was very knowledgable and it was nice having a fresh and positive mind on the boat. The good thing was we really didn't do anything different this tourney than any other one except being in the right place at the right time. give me a call later....Doug
