    Well hello everyone!!! Just droppin' in to say hello from Gitmo! Now for some good news! I got me a biggun a couple nights ago! 32lb barracuda! Sorry no pics, don't have my camera down here. That sucker fought! I caught it on a 7'2" medium heavy pole that I got for free from a buddy, rigged up with 30lb braided line, a 5/0 Gamakatsu circle hook with a 4 inch red snapper on the end! the only big fish caught all night!

    Well fella's take care and I'll try to keep in touch as much as possible while I'm down here!

    Justin, Sounds like a new PB in my book any big fish is still fun to catch and takes you mind off Gitmo for a little bit. I am glad I got to meet you the other day at Osage and I am glad you made it down safely.

    Thanks for posting the story.
