Mike S., Tara, and Blaze..Mike is a good friend that lives in Vail,Colorado.This year he brought his girlfriend, Tara. Mike comes to visit once a year when ski season is over for the mountain. Blaze is a dock-master at Capt. Hiram’s. The weather was perfect and we were headed off-shore. We stopped and got our Sardines, The bait was thick we were in and out. Then it was time to go drop some baits.
The fishing on the bottom was slow, so we headed out to troll. Well That was slow too. I decided to go back in and try some more bottom. Running in we stopped at 125 ft. and put out some live baits. Blaze quickly hooked up with a 8lb. Dolphin. We managed to catch 3 more small ones. We eventually made it back to drop on the bottom. The action was steady we caught several Sea-Bass and some small Snapper. Then Mike hooked up with the fish of the day. Mike had his hands full, it was quite the sight to see him fighting that fish. Well after some hard tug of war Mike eventually won. The fish was a big Gray-Grouper, 30lb. Well needless to say Mike saved the day. That was a memorable moment, after some high-fives, hugs and some hooting we headed home. Thanks Mike and Tara for coming fishing, Mike just think, you almost didn’t come that day!!! Well Thanks again buddy!!!! Check out the pic.!!!!!
