60 lb Wahoo 60 miles off Johns Pass, Madeira Beach

May 2017 - A few of us headed out for the first day of Snapper season and my Dad's annual Birthday fishing trip. My dad has always been the "Just one more cast" fisherman. After loading up our limit of snapper in 30 minutes, we decided to try another spot to catch some grouper. My dad like always said ok just one more drop down. He got about 20ft down and stopped the line to grab a drink before reeling up his next snapper. When he turned around to dig into the cooler his line took off! the fish ran straight to the top and away from the boat so we knew it wasn't a snapper! Back and forth, under and around the boat and one time around the anchor line (Luckily we worked as a team and handed the rod under the anchor line so we didn't get broken off. We finally saw color and it was a huge 60lb Wahoo! Being the biggest fish we have ever caught on our boat we thought it was only right to use the side door to pull the fish through. After it was all said and done, it was a great birthday memory and an awesome fish story! - Dustin C.
