Our buddy, Christopher Hyde, recently shared a sandwich with the Landlord. Here's his write up of the adventure.

that first part was almost exactly like what happened to me just trade the reaching behind for the sandwich to  reeling in a pole ....same feeling to of being a sitting duck ,now what to do, also the watching the water on the way in...Still do sometimes and have to make myself stop doing it or go crazy watching the depths....I was super happy that a motor boat came over after hearing me on my radio and floated with him talking for about 5 minutes....big help

great write up....where is that spot
Thanks for posting....they go on an ocean cruise in march I think so no worries HA!!!!
the one by cambria - the one that followed me- and this one in the story all seem to be mid sized GWS from what folks could make out

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.

People arenít supposed to look back. Iím certainly not going to do it anymore.Ē

The water would've been chummed brown if that was me
My biggest worry is that my wife(when I'm dead)will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it
