Entered the tournament with an all star cast.

Myself, Capt Wayne, Capt Morgan (nk3), John aka Moe, Broken Bobber,, and Capt 100 Ton Stellios!!!

Headed Out Around 60 Miles SE to a nice water break i seen on the charts... Got set up and was in great water ranging from 63 - 67.

Within 20 min we had a Nice mako in the slick est some where between 180-220lbs. He short bit a bluefish fillet twice? why he didnt just gobble it up anyones guess? He then came by the swam by the boat and left...

Disgusted we waited and waited for him to come back but he didnt...

2 hours later we had a blue shark enter the slick and gobble up the first bait he came to... We reeled him in took a pic and he was on his way.

Next came a small mako who barreled into the slick Hot. took a pitch bait right next to the boat... Right around keeper size but we took a pic and released him hoping a tourney fish.

Last Bite we had came on the far line down 30... Peeled off a ton a line.... Put up a good fight and just as we were getting close the hooked pulled

Water was Loaded with Life... We see sunfish, a sea turtle, dolphins, a whale a few patches of Bluefish and even small Bluefins pushing water...

We had Our chance but luck wasnt on our side... had some action and lots o fun

We had a great time ... Busting chops at its finest and LOT OF GOOD FOOD.
