They fish near the trench? Main land along stony point? Looks like stony island in the background.

A 26lb Brown is epic. Really cool. Bet it put up one hell of a battle.

They had a 30 minute battle. They were set up with 8 lb fluoro leader. We’re actually fishing for walleye.

I was not with them, unfortunately.

Fishing 20-30 feet of water. They caught the brown on a spoon, “poor white boy.” I believe it was on 4 colors of lead core. I am not sure of the speed. He does not have riggers in his new Boat yet.

They also had reef runners out on planer boards. I am guessing they were going 2.2 ish but Am not sure. I know when they fished for browns in the morning they were trolling in the high 2’s.

Gotta laugh at the "nice" fish comments.  Like Sollozzo said to Don Corleone "If you think a 26.35 lb. brown is just nice......te salut".

Thanks for all the comments from my friend. He is not a cell phone/computer person.

He is on a streak of good luck. Killed a bull moose in Newfoundland last year, and a 599 pound black bear in PA the year before.

That’s my dad in the picture, were fishing off my boat.  Fish was caught right off Pillar Point, about 20ft of water.  Caught on a Stinger, Dirty White Boy spoon, off a side planer.  Going about 2.4 mph.  Took us about 30 minutes to get it in, almost didn’t fit in net.  Running 15lb main line with 8lb fluoro leader.
