ok got to go to work post more later 


it is my intent to do what is best for TOF, my bed side manners suck and for that I am sorry.
I am blunt and to the point and I do not have the ability to sugar coat it to save your fillings, So really if I tell you stop pissing on the carpet, just knock it off, man up and don't puff up carry on like soap opera. the rules here are really light so man up.

Some have asked way do you put up with all the crap some put me through. and this is it
I am tired of big business just taking form us outdoorsmen. most of the product is defective and does not work as stated. bottom line if there product sucks I want ever outdoorsmen to know about.

All I ask is support those that support you, this place is about real unpaid information, its real outdoorsmen not paid to say something outdoorsmen.........

ok back to the fishing 

today I went all by my selfAttached File  DSCF1040.JPG   55.26KB   0 downloads

me and my captain go 22 miles to get to the marlin grounds and started trolling, in a few about an hour or two goes by when we get a call on the radio that one of the other boats found a big school of dolphins so Captain ask do I want to go... I asked him call him back and see if they are catching any Tuna yet, he said no so I told the captain to tell him to call back when they catch their first fish as we are not that far from where they are. 

well about 15 to 20 mins goes by and he calls back saying the bite is on.

so we reel the trollers in and run over and find the fleet Attached File  DSCF1047.JPG   78.05KB   0 downloads 

 

ok a little backstory, in the morning Captain George ask me what I want for bait, I said I want it all. so I got ballyhoo, squid, and sardines

 

ok back tot he story, as soon as we get there the captain starts trolling, we get picked up on a hoochie that he made himself. and bam Tuna on. Way I am fighting it he drops 2 rods with squid and double bam, so ask one is gaff and put the rod in the holder and fight the next in.... Gaff it and on to the third....... came unbuttoned.. 

 

so we get back in front of the school and drop the hoochie back and sure enough bam on again ... then captain drops the other two rods back with bait and bam both light up... another triple this time I get all 3 in.

Way I'm fighting the last one he drops two more baits back and bam they both light up... Attached File  DSCF1049.JPG   75.83KB   0 downloads

now by this time I'm getting tired so I ask the captain ha do you want to take some fish home to the family... he says way not... I say good start reeling. Attached File  DSCF1052.JPG   88.64KB   0 downloads I boated 10 and released 5 all in 1.5 hours, elcaptain boated and keep 3.Attached File  DSCF1051.JPG   94.37KB   0 downloads

the whole goal of the trip was to catch Marlin, of course, it would come on my last day right after we got off that tuna bite. we trolled about 4 to 5 miles and this boy comes out of the water and crashes the Ballyhoo and its on.
