I been working on my truck all morning, the alternator isn’t charging, couldn’t figure it out so I left for trolling at about noon to one of my hot spots, had one and lost it never did see it. I put another blue water herring on and about an hour later I pulled the down rigger up released the line from the clip and was thinking I would try this new lure I picked up at a show, I grabbed the new seeker rod and started cranking the accurate reel in slowly and felt a slight resistance, so I jerked and it got heavier, so I jerked harder, these seekers are limper than the berkleys I’m used to. Then up floated a king, it didn’t look big but as it trashed slowly on the surface it sounded big! It never ran, I cranked it right to the boat and whacked it on the head with a wooden gaff, that pissed it off and it ran! I whacked it 2 more times when it came close but he never did submit, the next time he came into range I stuck him with the gaff! I was hootin and hollering, damb near lost my voice!
