Finding Pogies was today and one toss of the net just south
of the pier netted enough for the days fishing. Decided to
out to 8A this time and the results are shown below. My
friend Loren Rapport and Randy Tolbert were my crew today.
first we thought they were going to be eating like alligators since we
caught the two fish shown below before we could all of the lines out. We
then lost a king at when a barracuda exploded on him at boatside leaving
us with nothing more than a head and then the same thing happened to a
bonito. I got my revenge when I free gaffed the cuda and left him with a
sore spot in his back. We continued fishing and lost a couple of more
kings for whatever reason and caught a couple of spotted kingfish - saber
toothed kingfish (cudas). Finished the day trolling a little while and
were back in the port by 2:00 P.M.
