and  the  saga  continued  on  saturday  10/3/20
same  boat  same  captain same  locations  same  results.
my  maybe  boat  record  lasted  a  week  and  then was  broken  by  a  foot  was  82 inch fork length fish  hooked  and  gaffed in  5  minutes.
lots  of  yellowfin  to  60  lbs  at  inshore  spot  one  sword  no  tuna in  canyon  no mahi,  one  wahoo  inshore must  have  been  close  to  6  feet.
probably  the  end  of  my  voyages  came  home  slept  16  hours feel  like a  bulldozer  ran  over  me. cant  take  the  beating  any more
but  had  a  great  string  over  the  years to  remember  fondly

Bill, I have felt the same way on more than one occasion, but I will bet you dollars to donuts that as soon as you forget how much you are hurting right now, you will be right back out there.

Wow, 5 minutes on a sword? Kamakazi!
 Can't keep a good man down.  Once the beating you took wears off, you'll be back, maybe a bit wiser and pace yourself a little
