So seeing that I'm employed in the " sport fishing" industry and seeing that this is the fish forum I thought I'd share this with you,.... Yesterday a few of my friends and co workers decided to charter out one of our large sprtfishing boats for a quick trip into Mexican waters to try and catch some "yellowtails" which have showed up recently,..for those of you who are not familiar with yellow tails , they are a member of the " jack" family much like the trevalys or the eastern amberjacks. ,they are noted for their unbelievable power and endurance,..we ,( " the boys") fish for them by casting large metal jigs using nine to ten foot rods towards breaking fish on the surface or by watching the birds which'll let you know where the are. ,hookups are a major adrenalin rush followed by some sizzling runs ,then some back breaking sulking under the boat refusing to budge or give an inch,..they are without a doubt one of the strongest fish pound for pound in the world.
I ended up with 3 fish yesterday ( 9 total landed on the boat ,a few lost) so I'm moving a little slower than normal this morning,..I included a couple of pics of two of my fish I caught.
On the aquarium side of life my replacement ecotech mp40 arrived yesterday so I'll have to set that up this morning when I get motivated , do my pwc
etc , it'll be a long day!
