There are really two things that come into my head with regard to this trip (aside from the obvious good company, bad food, etc). First...and this cannot be understated.
This shit is tough.
this fish...I mean 15 lbs.
So it just never came together for us. We got a few today, but the trip will be remembered for just how tough and difficult our chosen target species really is...and how close we came to an epic outing.
Thanks to McTage...appreciate you making the trip and sticking with those tough fish. So close to a few truly memorable monsters...guess you will just have to come back.
