Got a little bit of a late start gettin on the water but were headed out of the pass around 1:00p.m. and I had only been in the tower for maybe 10mins when this baby popped up maybe 10ft in front of the boat! I yelled down to my buddy to throw the breaks on and my jig barely had a chance to hit the water before she ate! It was a blast! and theres no way i could of gotten this fish without my best friend/captain Paris. Thanks again buddy for all your help!! (and the relief there so I could gaff my own fish:letsdrink ) oh and she was 44.56 on the outcast scale.
