After work area 9 King

July 21, 2008

Point No Point, Washington 07-21-08 06:00 PM ( about 2 hours )

Went to point no point after work today with Jim. We started north and trolled south. As we rounded the point, fish on! We bring in a 12lber. The current was pretty strong, but we managed to get back in line and a little while later, a twin is joined in the fish box. We circle around one more time and get back in our troll line. Third pass, and fish on!

This is a BIG one, Jim has it on and it peeled line fast! I started to turn the boat around, and bring up the other line. He's half way down the spool, and all of a sudden the line stops coming out abruptly. A second later, the line breaks! Turns out the braid had doubled on itself and was stuck. Should have respooled at the beginning of the season as I normally do. There goes our hot flasher and spoon that hooked all three fish.

No more hits after that for an hour, so we bagged it.
