Headed offshore and ended up with a 4th of July slammer!
We watched him stalk the lure from 100 yards away, slowly he worked through the weeds, and when my Triple D passed him, he slammed it.
Great fight, 10+ jumps clear out of the water. We had him to the boat 3x before sticking the gaff (I was getting worried, most big fish are lost at the boat, you don't always get 4x to stick a fish). I was a tad winded
48" to the fork, no idea on weight
The rest of the days catch
Took awhile to filet, but well worth it.
Had grilled dolphin Reubens last night
