Larva Lure - Change it, lock it, catch it


Another good day for Capt. Jared Weir on Shaka who found another big fish on the same spot as the day before releasing an 800lb-er. Likewise, Capt. Ian “Wobbles” Ford wrapped up his season on board Hot Shot with another nice one to finish at 750lbs.


Other boats had mixed luck. Capt. Casey Dent’s Levante started off a new trip with a 500lb-er not too long after baits in. And Capt. Tim Richardson on Tradition nabbed a little one about 275lbs for lady angler Leah Gath. Leah’s son Stetson is back on board again as well – you’ll probably remember Stetson fish from last year fishing with Tim during this same week who caught the 1220lb-er!

I heard several more had bites out of big fish and so hopefully there are more big fish stories to come over the next few days.
