So got the boot off my buddies boat and decided to go solo on mine. Got some eels and decided to try the highrise. Left MS at 2:45. On my way out to HR saw sum birds working past the fourth ocean side. no boats either!!! I decided to see what casting could produce. 1st cast fish on. 36" and fat. in the box she went. I had a little struggle landing the fish. Its kinda difficult when you got a good size fish and noone to help net. Needless to say it was a sight!!! I continued to cast as other boats quickly approached and began trolling. It was fun to watch bc the trollers were getting small fish all in 20- 28" range and evey fish i got was over 30". Ended up keeping that 36 and another 35". didnt even make it to high rise to eel!!! maybe next time. Bottom line. my buddies who booted me got 4 fish. My solo mission got me the fish i was looking for!!!!! So if anyone every needs a boat to fish on PM me!!

tight lines.

i have a tendency to jump peoples a$$, but you did admit you forgot. but to say i never shoulda said anything is probably not the right frame of mind. it could have been a coasty or marine patrol brought it to your attention.

I almost made the same mistake but I decided to read the reg's again and noticed the only one large fish. Not sure why people make such a big deal out of a simple mistake. I guess these are the people who never speed or break any laws mistake.

Hey just wanted to sat thanks for all the support. Honestly i know the regs just forgot when i was by myself. I used to fishin with a couple of commercial guys. I appreciate everyone opinion but like Bryansfish said while everyone points a finger at me look at your hand because there are 3 pointing back at you. everyone makes mistakes!!!

demasi, don't feel bad, by posing your honest mistake you probably have done a few of these TF guys a favor and prevented some fines...Just don't tell any bald eagle hunting stories and I think everything will be okay...

If this Demasi is the one I used to work with, I don't think he would knowingly keep them if it was against the law. Give the guy a break. Chris shoot me a PM if its you.
