I went on Lickety-Split's wahoo trip yesterday. It started glass smooth but about 15 miles (i'm guessing) it just got too rough, so we headed in. He could very easily have just dropped us at the dock, but decided to stop short and drop for some snapper. I REALLY appreciate that, because I had gone trough ALOT of trouble to get down there to fish. We made a few stops, but caught nothing. It had calmed a little, so we went a little father out to a couple of sites, and man were they hitting. That poor deckhand. There was really no point that there was not a fish in the boat! We got 10 legal snapper, probably 50 or so that had to be let go, Submariner caught a couple of Lanes, and a couple of triggers. I side hooked a trigger and thought that I REALLY had something. What a fight! Redlegs caught all of his on the same piece of Bonita skin all day. They were hitting so good, it didn't matter what you dropped on them! Cigars, squid, bonita... I even caught one on a pinfish that got puked up by one of my snappers...:letsdrink DaleS caught some too, but he is so quiet that I never heard him with one on. Redleg's son, "Showboat" JohnJohn (I think) really put on the show though. He stayed bowed up ont he rod and grunting. I told the capt'n that he was the perfect photo op to promote the boat! I think he caught more than the rest of us put together! Hell, half of the time he had TWO on!!! And every one looked like it was going to be a IFGA world record contnder! I intended to take lost of pics, but ended up not having time. I did get a few though. Oh, and Happy birthday "showboat"! And thanks to Submariner for donating a shade hat to replce my brand new one that got blown off my head on one of those 50-60mph burst coming back in. It had my lucky fly fishing fly on the bill too!

I'll post pics in a little while...

The Blue Hoo (10/21/2007)

so a bunch of yall's snapper went 35+ pounds?
No I meant that he was making quite a show out of every fish that he caught. We spent the rest of the day calling him "showboat". No 35+ pounders. All keepers were minimum legal to 2-3 inches more. Anyway it made the trip worth coming down.

Brandon said he may try to schedule another trip, but I just dont think I will be able to afford it. I'm gonna try though. I really want to catch a hoo, or something fast enough to make a reel SCREAM!
