Caught 5 min from the ramp and back in before 7. About 30 seconds before he goes "Wow I just saw a big arch on my sounder. Hardly ever happens" and then zzzzzziiiiiiinnnngg! "Got a snapper" he says. "Not that big, think I fowl hooked him." A minute later.. "hmmm might be a bit better than i thought".
Then my trolled line is over his feet (thats how close we are when he hooks up) and there are some tense moments as Damo calmly sorts it out and his stupid friend paddles well out of the way. Then he goes "Its a longtail" So I get even further out of the way.
I call him about 45 min later and he is back at the ramp. Not bad for 5min + 40 min work.
