    Default First butt of the year

    Got my first butt of the '11 season today. ~140lbs according to the tide book. Was jigging a 21oz slove with my brand new lamiglass rod (first trip). No idea how deep I was, the drift was pretty bad. Got lucky I guess!

    Better to be lucky than good, eh?

    Or, as some would say, the harder you fish, the luckier you get . . .
