Default Oh S#&t!

Put in at Navarre Beach with Yakntat trying to get some time in before the sun went down. Conditions were great with a little chop and no waves. Dragged a Yozuri and Cigar for a bit at 35ft with no bites. Decided to move out to deeper water and still nothing. Bored, I just let the Cigar fall to the bottom in 60ft of water. Tap Tap Tap....I start reeling up slowly and bam!



Not bad. Sun is going down, so I bait back up and try to get back to the spot and heard the MOST WONDERFUL CRACK!



Shock turned to disbelief. Then anger, then fear. We were almost a mile out and the sun was dipping quick.



There is nothing like paddling a fatass Pro Angler back in to shore. I'm not in the greatest shape, but we did make it back before dark. Crazy way to end a day. I will be taking the Mirage to Liquid tomorrow.

Tight Lines!

I'd write Hobie, but aluminum is not immune to corrosion. I have numerous cracks fixed in my half tower over the years.

SALTWATER eats EVERYTHING. Except plastic and styrofoam maybe.
