I got this email from Matt on an outstanding catch on a recent trip on the American Angler. Check it out
Subject: Fwd: Photos of the 182# YFT Caught on a Blue/White 6X (from Gary Teraoka)
Date: Monday, January 19, 2009, 4:28 PM
Dr. Corey Burak (orthopedic surgeon) got a 182# YFT with his own Blue/White 6X. Enclosed are a couple of photos that I took. I thought that you might consider using one of them for next years 2010 Bill Roecker calendar photo. I will copy Dr. Corey Burak on this e-mail, if you want to get in touch with him. Corey did tell me that he had no objections if you wanted to use my photo of him and his YFT. The third photo (#5612) includes deckhand Bobby (aka Bubbles) who gave Corey a little assistance in landing this big jig fish on a undersized outfit. Also the treble hook broke (during extraction by the crew), so I have the actual 6X jig that Corey used, and he would like to get a new hook installed. Preferably a single hook.
Thanks again, Gary Teraoka
Whoa!!!! What a biggie on the Iron. Thanks for the story Matt and Gary
