I was gonna write a long story, but I'll keep it short as I'm trying to move forward. On day 2 of TTT we headed out to one of the flooded islands only to catch a bunch of sand bass. Pulled up and headed to spot number 2, and that's where it happen. Had a good windy long point, with only 3 fish for 2 days of fishing I was going big or go home trying. I starting making long long cast with a DD-22, after 3 cast I ask my partner to go back I was hung. I felt a tugging, I hadn't felt a fish bite in so long, so I told my partner its a dang trotline. Then the line started running pulling drag as it began to come up. Realizing it was something big coming up I tried to keep it down, but she came up clearing the water & shaking her head. It was the MOST beautiful fish I have every seen. (its like that moment was in slow motion), Pretty white underside fading into a dark green body, with a huge mouth. After she re enter the water I kept reeling only to feel the the wobble of my Deep diver again. Man That hurt so bad till it was hard to recover. Didn't catch any weigh able fish. I never caught an official double digit fish, but I can say she was possibly probably one, if not very close too it. Just had to get that off my chest, couldn't sleep last night.
