That bad Larry bought a lot of diesel for Babalu.

How much you want to bet he shows up at the party with a can of Chicken of the Sea?

Dude, you should know better than that.
This isnt my first rodeo but it was the first Giant on my best mans boat (smiling from ear to ear in back of the guy in the yellow shirt)

I do have some more photoshops though:



Some previous years fishing pics:





I'm 6'2" 275 in this pic, how big you think my buddy is?



and me leadering a 600lb class Blue Marlin on the same boat:

Drssed weight was 596 lbs.
Since we gut them at sea to start the cooling process we dont know the exact live weight but it calculates out to 820 lbs

It was 109" long and had a girth of 74"
I'm 6' 2" and the fish was as big around as I am tall, a fatty for sure.

I'm hoping I cant make the party actually because that means the fish are still out there and the weather is decent.

Looks nice from our homes this AM but right now the waves are AVERAGING 7 feet every 8 seconds where we caught this one Thursday.
Pretty snotty and it will be for the next few days but I can assure you the next weather window I am GONE FISHIN'

I dont get what all the whining is about. Sounds like a nice day offshore to me. Unless you're a chunkah?

Yes, fish was caught drifting live baits.
The troll bite blows because the place gets loaded with googans trolling squid bars from twin and triple outboard boats.
Fvckin clueless bastards the lot of them. It ruined the trolling fishery out there.

Drifting in those seas is just a brutal day raises the odds in the fishes favor drastically too. Big seas = lots of lost fish.

Sack up and get a harpoon like you have a pair.

I've tried many pairs of glasses and those enable me to see into the water best, see the PERFECT harpoon shot to the head of that fish?

The saga continues
