Heres a BIG THANK YOU to Hook, Wagonmaster and Wookie for taking us out today and showing us how its done! My husband and I have been out a number of times previously- to no avail. But today we BOTH caught our first steel! Was a great day and we enjoyed our selves very much - with such GREAT company! Thanks again guys! As you can see in the shot - something else caught the fish before me - lol. as it had a nice size chunk taken out of his side!
In this shot HOOK was helping to take the hooks from the fishes mouth - someone else had previously caught this same fish and lost it as there was more than just MY hook in the fishes mouth. (Boy this fish has gone through alot already - lol)

I caught mine on a pink worm and my husband caught his on one of the famous Bent rod jigs :thumbup:

Re: BIG Thank You!

your very welcome you 2 :thumbup: :thumbup:

it was a great day out there. the water had a bit of color and had come up almost a foot which was nice to see for sure. the best part of my day was helping these 2 losing their steel virginity :happy: That fish that fishnfvr got had been beat up alot in its lifetime by seals and fisherman thats for sure but what a trooper and still going strong, it not only had multiple hooks in its mouth it also had another large seal gash on the other side and lots of healed ones also :confused: man steelies are tough cookies. her husbands fish was definately not as old of a fish because it was prestine :thumbup: and just a gorgeous bar. the fish my dad got also had a very rough life with seals showing multiple attack marks, here are the pics of his fish. First pic is me being sneaky getting a pic with it right after i grabbed it and the next is him after its rock shampooing :happy:




his fish was the end of the day because Wookie and I couldnt find anymore hiding in thier homes :confused: GREAT company out there today :thumbup: :thumbup: when do you 2 wanna do this again?

Re: BIG Thank You!

that first fish had been attacked more than once by the marks on it and the hooks still in its jaws :naughty: it had several seal gashes but the one you see in the pic being the worst, but hey the fish was still all power and took off like a madman :thumbup: :thumbup: he will be making some big babies :beerchug:

i should have taken a pic of the stomach on my dads fish because she had a weird dip like a peice of her belly had been torn off when younger but i forgot and after he split the belly you couldnt tell.

the second fish was markless and very fresh and healthy which is why i think it was most likely a younger fish. The first one has been through alot of battles and won them all :happy: :happy:
