Can't fish anymore this month so I figured I'd motivate some others to get out on the water.

Only one fish to submit.....but she was a nice one.

63.8 lb. WSB on the certified scale at Dana Landing.

57 1/2 " fork length.

On bait.

4/15/11

One hell of a fight. I instantly knew this fish was either something special or it was the wrong kind.

Now lets see if the darkhorse has a slam to submit this month. On that note, I'll put in my quick plug for Josh. I've only been fishing LJ for a little less than 2 years but I've had pretty solid results for the number of times I'm actually able to get out on the water. I waited about 6 months to hire Josh and what I've learned in just a few trips with him has accelerated my fishing I.Q. and overall production to the next level. Obviously, you must put time on the water, but the little things I've learned have been invaluable. I may have figured some things out on my own. Others, I would have never figured out. Take from it what you want, but 'the maestro' knows LJ and he is willing to share his knowledge.

Only thing is, if you're competing against him, don't let him near your trophy fish once you gaff it. He had his pliers out ready to bleed that fish in no time.

Great fish! Breaking the 60lb mark is impressive. Love the over the shoulder carry pic!

WOw!!!

That grin says it all.

Didn't even know there was a MB Marlin Club to take a catch for weighing.

Would be a funny pic to see the tail of that beast hanging out the back of the car as you drive away.

Congrats!!!

Oh come on---the first thing I said when I saw her wrapped below the boat was: "she's the right size, lets not do anything stupid". If I really wanted to win this thing, I could have wrapped my rudder on your line, by accident .

Seriously, though, it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. I was stoked to cut her gills for you---and what's a few ounces on a fish like this?

That's what a real one looks like, boys!

Thank goodness for the 50 point slam bonus, though. I've been eating like a king.
