BW Fever

Dive deep, throw sand, shoot fish, but above all respect the flag!

Had a killer morning dive from shore.
Saw this guy late, and was blessed on a long shot to the tail. Daryl's tip made the hold to the surface.
On the swim back to the rocks an Ono twice as big as the one on my kui surface swims half moon around my left shoulder 10' under the water and presents me with a perfect shaft placement at the shoulder. 5th and pinned the log is off with me swimming my hardest next to my float holding the 40lb+ fish up trying to eleviate pressure off the drag. Aaand snap, the shoot line goes limp. The mono snaps in the middle, not at the fin or swivel.
The toad swam off with my shaft and slip tip.
One Meter a Second.

Damn Sasha, I'm digging the visible evidence of use your wooden Ono is getting while chasing the fishy onos - great fish, but bummer about the other one!
On great days I shoot fish and on good days I spook fish

Sorry to hear you lost a beautiful fish with shaft and slip-tip. Love seeing your reports crushing it out there!
