Work has had me busy these past few season so what little time I’ve been able to make available has been spent offshore. 
 

I’ve been blessed with opportunities to fish with a couple great captains in recent years.

 

My 1st sword ever came this past March  in marathon key. It was everything I had ever hoped for however the idea of leaving my own home port and returning with a sword was still an itch I wanted to scratch… a true bucket list item

 

last week I got a call to go last second and I made myself available. Boy am I happy I did. We battled 6-9’ chop/swell on the way out, had me seasick for the 26 of the 31 hour trip. 1st deep drop was 7:30 am, after 4 drops on 2 locations we finally hooked up. The fish shot strait to the surface and came off about 100’ from the boat. The skip and crew marched on… last drop was @ 4:30 then we needed to head in at 5 to make it to the dock for midnight. About 10 minutes in to our last drop we were tight again! With a short fight and perfect execution we boated our trophy 

 

bucket list complete… triple marker
