Well he's still alive unless mr.seabass got hungry. Has anyone ever caught or seen a 10" or bigger hackle?
Yes I've been lucky enough lol I'ce caught a couple of big ones over the years while blackfishing.
I second that! Certain places in LIS have/had (I haven't fished them in quite some time) a very healthy population of them, and they were a consistant bycatch while togging. FYI: I've also seen some jumbos this time of year fluking in the harbors in the northport/huntington area.
