    Took my brother in law fishing saturday Jan 6 2007. We fished all day in a variety of holes without a bite. Finally about 430 pm he hooked into this 48 lber. This was his personal best and his first trophy Blue. Skipjack was the bait of choice and we were in 45 ft of water. Water temp was 53 degrees.

    the fish looks like it was caught in the same spot your wife caught her big blue on christmas. congrats on being so succesful. to keep catching big fish takes alot of work and even more time. i have spent alot of time and money to do tne same. this fall i finally caught a flat over 50 lbs. hope to see you posting more giant blues. good luck and congrats once again.

    Yes that was us. Current was VERY strong yesterday. Had a hard time getting the bait to the bottom.
