Wasn't my boat, but my old college roommate's dad's boat. Does that count?
It was years ago.
The fish was a 7'6" sailfish, kinda skinny at only 53 pounds. I'm not an expert on them, but my friend's dad said he was skinny 'cause it was the end of the breeding/mating season and he was just starting to eat again.
We were about 8 miles off shore, nearly due east of Palm Beach, FL.
Rig was a bait fish... I can't recall
right now what it was called, but we caught them in shallow water
with a net before we headed offshore
. There was a teaser plug with feathers and such on the line ahead of the baitfish, and a stainless steel
The boat was making 4, maybe 5 knots, not real fast. The fish only jumped once and he really was not a big challenge to bring in. But he sure did taste good!
