MenTa Cuisine says: TB to one of my most epic catches solo on the skiff on vertical jig- 77lbs wahoo- no gaff…it was one of those mornings that i wasnt going to fish but went anyways for an hour or so before work…hooked a monster that peeled me then broke my line…minutes later i hooked another monster that peeled me and after a nice fight got unhooked…at this point i thought i was dealing with a school of reef sharks…minutes later i hook the third, i was pretty agravated and needed to get to work so i began to horse the fish on almost full drag not caring if i lost it or not thinking it was a shark…till i looked down and saw the stripes…my legs buckled, heart skipped a jump, started saying im sorry for the horsing, lowered my drag a bit…then realized i hadnt brought my gaff…circled him a bunch of times around the skiff wondering how the hell i was going to get him onboard…managed to slip my hands in his gills when his snout got stuck on the skiffs edge…so stoked. At this point i realized the monsters i had lost earlier were definitely monster hoo’s and not sharks! #rightplacerighttime #wahoo #arecibo #puertorico #skifflife #solo #aftco #aftcopr #mentacuisine #keolasurfandfishing
