i have one comment for the capt.
next time you put that poor kid on a big aj or yellowfin
for god sake give him a harness attached to the reel lugs.

Bridger was able to man-handle the AJ's without an issue. He was put in a full Braid Power-Play harness once we were able to pull the warsaw out of the rig. The pic you see is when we first hooked-up, and were trying to pull the fish out of the rig.

The first 30 seconds on a big fish will make you or break you. Once the fish is clear from the structure we put him in a full harness. We also had a spotter holding Bridger since he was 100% connected to the fish at that point. Bridger is as good of angler as I've ever had on my boat. And that's really saying something, since I fish just about every weekend when the weather is good.

Re: Will swap offshore fishing trip for hunt.

We had a great trip when Don and Bridger came down a couple weeks ago. We were constantly on fish, and as usual Don and Bridger put a hurting on them. I'll be going to Colorado chasing Elk with them in September, and I can't wait.

I don't have any pics from their trip, but I'm sure Don will post some. Here's some pics from last weekend's trip. I had a group of guys from Mississippi. We ended up with 12 Red snapper, 20 Mangrove Snapper, a cobia, a warsaw, and 13 Yellowfin Tuna. It was slick calm.

Re: Will swap offshore fishing trip for hunt.

Here's the a few more from last weekend. I believe I've fished every weekend but one in the last 10 weeks!

If anybody else wants to do a trade let me know. I'd be interested in elk, moose, bear, big whitetails, etc.
