Today was quit a remarkable fishing day. I started early in the morning in the area I fished the last days and got immediately a fish on which went off again, followed by 5 hours without any action.
Around noon I got the next strike, off again. Immediately after a real monster hook, one off the surface rods went off and the reel was screaming. The fish emptied the reel half in no time, a big one was on. With the strike the wind started blowing and I had no chance to bring the fish closer, so I cleaned the rods on one side including the planer board and drove circles to close distance to the fish.
As soon as I got him to the boat he crossed at the back and went to the other side than to the front and back to the original side again, I had to follow with the rod climbing around the boat in high seas. After another 10 minutes I finally could net him, the weight in the harbor was 14.7 kg.
