That Dorado come to the boat in about 1 minute or less after I hooked it, Ryan put the gaff in it (his first ever to gaff a fish) and brought it on board and the fun begun, LOL.

Thanks guys.

Kidflex, yes we were at Boomvang.
Boomvang and Nancen are parking lot, there were more than 15 boats at that area.

Nice catch TJ! Looks like you guys had a great time. I'm trying to get a divorce so I can go fishing more often. :)

i heard from some old timer that if you throw a towel over their eyes they stop thrashing. we did that on my 50# yft which came to gaft less than 5 mins then was bled with little effort. this was easier than clubing the previous one to submission :)
nice trip & fish
