    Little Susitna River, outside of Wasilla Alaska yesterday. They also had 3 jacks (immature kings that return anyway). Son lost one big king at the boat that guide estiamted at 35 pounds. 10 year old son handled the rod all by himself, so did my daughter. Here I sit at home headed to work tomorrow. I couldn't make the trip to Grandma's this year. Happy for them, frustrated that I wasn't there to share the experience.

    A few of the Mrs. If it has fins, she wants to fish for it. We don't get to do a lot of saltwater fishing, living in the heart of mutt country and all.

    some awesome pics!!!!
    I wish I could post more. . . don't fish as much these days! LOL!
    I did take the boat to Lucaya for a 1 day tuna trip last week. We did not find a lot of really big fish, though we had a 70+ get sharked and another big fish pull the hook. We did pretty well, and took home some dinner.

    No video, no photo but did jump a small tarpon this morning. Had a pod of maybe 20 rolling within casting distance. Threw a topwater at 'em a half dozen times before, whoosh, you could here the inhale and then this 3 1/2' - 4 footer jumps up, gives a nice head shake and then crashes down on his back. No bow on our part and he was gone. I love sight casting. Fun morning.

    ^^^ Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    One day I will catch a red.
    We don't have em down this way much. I once chartered a guy out of Louisiana, thinking I would for sure check off the 'redfish' box on my resume.
    We got skunked.

    Went swordfishing for the first time a couple weeks ago. . . not my cup of tea.
    On the way out we ran into a nice school of mahi . . . my cup of tea.

    bttt

    need some fresh reports around here

    went to Kauai, was ready for a 6 hour yellowfin trip with family and a 8 hour night tuna trip with a bunch of locals that sold me a seat on their charter. Boat broke down, never went. End of week boat had opening but seas were 6 - 8 feet and wife wasn't having any of that so no real fish report.

    family has never done mahi fishing. they live in Florida and have caught all types of salmon but never a mahi.

    west palm or key largo are my options. west palm is probably closer. two to three weeks from next weekend. suggestions??

    So glad to see that this thread is still alive! There are so many great fishing experiences and photos here! Amazing!!
    Hubby and I finally had a day to go search for some reds, and we had a super day on Sat. Finally caught some keepers and some big throw-backs. It was a beautiful day and our redfish meal tonight was delish! :)
