    Man, those fish look very strong. I have heard they have soft flesh and that they even hooks have made long tears in their flesh.

    They are the hardest fighting fish I have encountered, they have endless fighting power. Their mouths and flesh are very soft thats why most captains will fight them with low drag but Im not a fan of fighting forever so we fish for them with normal drag with the thought process is I would rather them break off early than later. So we put the wood to them

    You always have a early shot to gaff them for the most part 9 of 10 fish once hooked no matter how deep will immediately surface and jump, if you can get near them on the way up you may have a shot at it green if not dig in because it will be a hard one

    Last year we had an epic night with 5 bites, 2 released, 2 kept and 1 lost. My son Anthony had 2 fish back to back thought his arms were going to fall off. Obviously I was the one who dropped a fish, he wouldnt do such a thing

    Fishing at night for these beasts is the ultimate battle
