    Default Back From Surf City

    But only, a couple of weeks. Left, in June. Neurologist, says, I still can't work, so, why stay home, when I have a place, in Surf City.

    Had an above average season, for big fish, from the pier. Started off, with 3 Tarpon, (Released) Ended up, w/ 5 Kings, and I left to come home, when they really started biting.

    The 1st Tarpon, we brought on deck, was 62" long. other 2 were, estimated at 60 and 80 lbs.

    Had a 4th one on. HUGE! It was 2 PM, mid August, high 90 degrees, no wind, high humidity, and he was 150 Plus. I was looking at a 2-3 hour battle, and I said, no way! Slammed the drag lever forward, in the International, and straightened out all 3, 6 Xtra strong trebles.

    The Kings, were all in the 20's, from 21, to 26.5 lbs.

    Meant, I've been home, a couple of weeks. And, I left, to go to the coast, in June. Hopefully I'm not.
