I'm not a very good story teller but here it goes...

Getting ready...



First fish of the day for me, a nice red. While toying around with this one, I get a run on my second line but didn't get a hook in it. Had to be a shark cause of the shape the leader was in.



Fish number two... about 4' maybe??





I think someone is taking a nap!!!



Fish number three... around 6' ? This one hit like a freight train and was hard for me to get slowed down. The MXL has around 300yds of line and it was disappearing at a rapid rate. I really didn't want to come off anchor but didn't see that I had a choice if I wanted to see this fish. So off on the sleigh ride I go. A big thanks to Myth for catching up and helping me with what has to be the biggest and strongest fish I caught in my life.









This is what I get trying to help out the little MXL!! I'll go ahead and admit that I didn't help very long!! hahaha



While Myth and I were paddling/pedaling our way back from Louisiana, I hear my wife say "fish on" on the radio. This was her first fish BTB and pretty sure it's not her last!! She has to be one of the best "potlickers" I've seen in a long while too. Not only will she get next to you and fish but while your gone, paddle over and tie up to your anchor!!



Maybe later today I can get some video posted up.

I had a great time and itchin' to go again!!!

Here is a little (12min) video of my three catches on Thursday. It was made with a ion S3000 that I picked up on Ebay for a whopping $25 so the quality isn't there. It has no mic so the sound isn't either!! lol

They say it's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think your a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. With this video, I guess I'm opening my mouth grin grin ... So here ya go.
