    At least his greatest day fishing on a charter ever, at least that I was with him. He hooked up. It was funny. Most things I would say went his way. He managed to catch the first legit fish of the day, a halibut going around 25lbs. Next he hooked up on what was a nice fat batray...Then came the hookup on the black seabass he got broke off on...Then he boated a nice grade white seabass, going a little heavier than the halibut...Then we decided to do the raffle for the rod we built for the trip and guess who won it...He also got first and second place in the jackpot, took a nice nap, and manged to smoke approximately 200 cigarettes...For some reason it was a little tougher day for me. I seemed fairly driven to fish 10lb test and my trout reel, which didn't serve me that well when I hooked up with something that was almost positively a large yellowtail. I've never seen a spool spin that fast...Needless to say it was not landed..I did wind up getting a few groundfish and a nice fat sandbass on the trout rod at the end of the trip. I had fun. Got to meet Jose's wife Jane and she caught her first legal seabass. I felt good for her. Shawn did his stellar job running the boat as usual and didn't throw me off or tell me I couldn't come back so you know he is also a nice guy. I even asked him if he was mad that I was fishing the trout rod and lost that big fish and he said no. Overall I mainly just farmed fish and had a good time. It was nice as can be out for all of our fishing day. Congratulations Mitch!

    Every dog has his day.......

    Mitch,

    nice going on all the quality fishes. I was there too and didn't get to say good bye to John, (who was messing with me all day) Jose, (who got messed with all day) and his lovely, talented, wife Jane. I had a fun day too, although I only got two fishies. Shawn and crew always come through on our charters. I hope the new stick brings you luck on your 5 day Mitch!:D

    Great day of fishing with some great company on a great boat. Good to see Phishy be the top stick for the day. Had lots of laughs and even caught a couple fish. I got rocked by a yellow and then look over at John who gets bit on his trout rod. Once the yellow realized he was hooked I swear the reel started smoking. Gotta love it!
