Ha!  Probably both.  Was fishing on Falcon a few years ago with a friend and they were biting like crazy.  Mostly big to really big fish.  To the point where 7s and 8s were kind of meh, just another good one, that one was pulling hard, though she was a BIG one.  Talk about spoiled!  Then this whopper bit, went streaking out of shallow cover to deep water, finally coming at the boat.  My hands were pretty raw from lipping fish and I was feeling pretty confident so I just swung her in.  Don't think I'd try it in a tourney!!!!

Falcon can be fantastic at times. I had a great time my first time there. We caught a lot of big fish and met some really nice people.

I've done the same thing with an ~8 at Falcon about 2 years ago when the other person in the boat was being a bit slow getting the net for how excited I was!

Mr. Redington, Any chance you will be guiding again in the future?

That T-rig would have shot out of her mouth like a rocket if she had come unbuttoned. Wear a face shield next time you do that!

Sometimes it is all you can do when they short strike you. Otherwise I would go with stupid.

As they say- If it worked don't knock it. Great fish.
