Not a real long report but I'll give the main details.

Went offshore with a customer of ours on his 335 Pursuit along with his dad and close family friend. Hit some bottom spots around yellow gravel and got some nice beeliners, scamp and a 50lb AJ. Hooked a big Sandbar Shark too that beat his dad up pretty good.

Ran south to the Spur for some swording. 8 boats out. Chatted with 4 different guys and only heard of 1 sword caught, which seems the complete opposite of the night before. Got 2 Blackfin Tuna. Trolled at sunup and headed North to the pocket of cobalt north of the Squiggles.

Hooked a 400-450lb Blue Marlin 3 times. Teased it up and fed it all 3 times and just couldn't keep a hook in there. Fish kept coming back. Got the Wahoo of a lifetime at the spur. Weighed 102lbs back at the dock, 77 inches. If she had a little more girth to her she would've pushed 110lbs or so. Was very excited to deck a 'Hoo over the century mark.

Water at he Spur was nice blue/green and got worse than a whole lot better north of the squiggles. Weedline formed about 15 miles NE of the Spur. Lots of bait on it as well.

Damn man nice fish to bad it wasn't a tourney.
I wouldn't have caught him if I was in a tourney. Unless the winning fish was 102.2 or some ridiculously close number. I have a history of bringing wahoo in to tournaments that are only a few tenths of a pound shy of the 1st or 2nd place mark. As long as I'm consistent, I will never win 1st place on a Wahoo!

I wish I had a pic of the Blue but she must have a bill and mouth made of titanium. Hooks are apparently useless on that one.
