Cousin Greg with his prize, 52 inches, 54 lbs 5 oz.
Here is the recap of the hardest fished weekend of my life. Despite fishing every night, I still managed to spend the days at the beach with my wife and 3 kids every day. I really need some sleep!
Thurs. My friend Glen came up, we fished midnight - 4 am, we landed 2 20 pounders and a 25 pounder. I'll get pics up when I download my camera.
Friday coalman came down and we fished 11 pm - 6 am. See his thread "The continuing adventures of Captain Danny and Coalman" for details.
Saturday My cousin Greg and my brother Jonas come out with me. Greg usually makes one fishing trip a year with me and this time he made it count. We headed out at midnight and on our very first drift we hear him say the quote we have jokingly repeated a hundred times already, "I think I got something"
"Something" turned out to be a 52, 54 lbs, 5 oz monster!
Greg followed that one up with the next and last fish of the night, a 38 lbs and 5 oz cow!
And here's one of the 3 of us celebrating at Surfland right when they open, (Sorry Liz for the wake up noise)
I got a few pics on the boat I'll post when I down load the camera.
And finally, worn out and ragged I headed out at midnight Sunday with my buddy Wally who was extremely pumped to get after it after the news from the night before, and despite giving it our best till 7 am we only managed to land 1 dinky little schoolie. Sorry Wally, we'll get 'em next time.
