Does size matter
« on: May 09, 2019, 12:51:05 PM »
Does size really matter, I got a chance to get out yesterday and fish with Chad, his dad, and one of Chad's co-workers?  I was able to land a 65-inch 7 Gill. So far, this season, I have caught two 7's under 70-inches does size really matter?

Usually size does matter, except for the P-Soul shark list!  hahahahaha

Nice one Andre!  Congrats!

Did Chad or the other guys get any bites?  Was there any other type of bites from different critters?
You can't catch them from your computer chair.

You are on a pretty good streak these days.

I would honestly be stoked to catch a 3 footer.

I've said it before and I'll say it again Andre............"STOKED FOR YOU".  Hopefully my father can see one in person tomorrow, he's starting to think I 'lifted' the shark pictures off the internet    ;D

Given how often we skunk out, I'd be happy with them at any size! Nice fish Andre.

There were a few critter bites. Chad's co-worker got hit by a calico and lost it in the surf. Chad and his dad, their bait was getting chewed.

Thanks, Vern! Now that your Dad has his license, I want to be there when he lands one.

Best tip I can give you is just keep fishing. It will happen.
