Extreme photos anyone?

I check in here frequently but this forum gets little use. Anyone have any "hero shots" they want to post? They don't have to be of your fish...any big fish will do.

I am contemplating taking a bluewater charter to hook a wahoo on the Atlantis two-hander (11/12wt) CND. I'd have to talk then into letting me throw the fly rod instead of their normal crank routine. The problem is a 40# wahoo could take my fly line and all my backing and snap the arbor knot unless the captain will work the boat in a flyrodder's favor.

If I decide to say aw screw it and go for it anyway, I might have a pic for this board in a few days.

I posted these this summer on the Striper Board... Not caught on a fly rod but a spinning rod....Here is the post...."Headed out of Ryders Cove at 4:30 Am... to about 20 miles off shore....Whales, birds and bait... breaking Tuna...Boated 3...I was with my sons Girlfriend's Dad....He trolled big rigs and landed one on that... then we run and gunned with light tackle spinning rods with sluggo's.... No fly rod...when In Rome do as the Roman's do..but no regrets... Long fight, crampped arms on short spinning rods.... 30 pound braided monom and 2 foot 60 pound test tipett. A day to remember... anxious to get out again with a 14 .weight"

In the 'long gone olden days...' 6 of use

would go to Westport, WA and charter a 6 man boat and chase king, et. al. with fly rods. More often than not, we were just as successful as guys draging around a dead bait fish.

Had to take turns casting, but two could work the bow area, two the deck well. Two would tip back a beer.

A total scream on 6-8 wt rods!

Very cool photos. That is a nice tuna! I like that sail too. Juro I want a wahoo pretty bad too. I know better than to wish for a big one. Those 100 lb'ers would probably make me mess my shorts. That's a neat plane photo. Are those flares?

FOR REAL?? Now you're getting SERIOUS!

We'll have to talk when I get back... hopefully I will have a little experience in those matters.

Not as big as those tunas, but for its type -- this bone was a monster.

Picture of a 186 lb Mako that my grandson caught with standup tackle from My son's first Mako Bound. From a proud Grandfather, too bad not on a flyrod.
