    Rod & Reel - East Cape of Baja - 110# Swordfish

    Being she was so small, usually they throw em back, but for whatever reason they kept her and I got some good fillets and a canvas imprint of her body.

    I even reeled her in all by myself, and there was jellyfish all over the line so it was burning my arms and legs, but I wouldn't give up.

    3 Red Snapper all over 20lbs on one dive. The largest of the 3 was 24lbs. My buddy shot a 26lb snapper the same day on a different spot. It was a good day.
