Fishing method Boat
« Previous Report Next Report »

Took my niece and nephew bass fishing on the bunker pods. After going from pod to pod for three hours and no life we decided to go fluking. After getting them set up I was rigging myself up and my nephew said I got something. I looked up and 30 yards from the boat a 100 pound plus thresher leaps out of the water. Its on 20 pound test and spearing and squid combo. After 2 and 1/2 hour s and 4 jumps he gets the fish to side of the boat for a couple of photos and we released it for another day. As he was fighting this fish I put out my shark pole I had with me and within 5 minutes we had another one on. My niece started fighting this one. After a few minutes she handed it over to me. We got this one to the boat for a few photos and released it. We also had two makos fighting each other around the boat. It was a great day.

Judging by the gear you keep on board you obviously know what your doing. Everyone is entitled to take their legal limit of any fish. But it takes a real sportsman to take photos in the the water and not at the scales. Not to mention the lessons you are passing on to the next generation of fisherman (women). Great story, great photos, great release, and great job. up
