    Aboard the Phat Cat 28ft Kevlar Cat were Rick, Ryan, Grescobia and my self.
    Ryan had his first yft and enjoy the tuna heart:D.
    I hooked my first Dorado on popper and almost get the treble hook in my leg.

    Bret, it was on laser blue wombat.
    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.

    Were you there as well?

    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
