Headed out Fri morning and set up in 130' of water South of the Yankee. Except for the whale and a bunch of Dolphin it was a slow, but beautiful, day until 2:00PM when the short float starts to get batted around for a good 10 long minutes before the reel sings. It was a short but spectacular fight with 5 jumps out of the water before he wrapped himself in wire and pop..... gone! Sat around sulking til 4:00pm when I pulled the plug, emptied the chum bag, and took in the three lines. Then my daughter spots a fin by the floating chum ball!!! Motor up to it, throw a pitch bait and its game on!! Until he wraps himself around the outboards and again...POP. Nothing to bring home, but it did make for a exciting day for the people I had on board.
