Tsuri Waza !!

So to make matters worse, we took Dan fishing.

FREAKING BEGINNERS DUMB LUCK !!

Dan caught 2 of the biggest sea bass I have ever seen, 19 inches and slightly over 20 inches.......

Then a 6 lb black fish....

THEN HE finishes the day with a 32 inch striped bass...

Pics to follow.... unbelievable. !!!!!!!!!

Re: Tsuri Waza !!

I recall reading somewhere that some of the largest records are held by women and the attribution was due to the fish smelling the estrogen on the bait/lures. I wonder if all that internal training to become more sensitive has some other effects on the hormones? I ,of course, have only caught the tiniest of fishes.

are you saying that Dan produced more estrogen than women and hinting that Dan is a woman?

It is likely I'll have more to report on the matter after the seminar...

Howie, I think you've played by a ringer...isn't Boston a fisherman's town? Congrats on that ginormous fish, Dan!
