After a bumpy ride out, we got to the bank realizing that the live well pump had blown out. When i opened the well i saw 15 dead pogies at the bottom with no water. I got a few live ones from the other boat out there and we were able to get one up on the kite. Around noon there was a huge boil under the kite, but it missed the bait. A half hour later one of the guys on the charter told me to look at a whale which was on the other side of the boat. When i turned back around I looked up at the kite and noticed it was going down towards the water. A second later the clip released and there was a huge boil. We were tight on a giant.
The fish ran about 4 hundred yards and jumped a few times before we were able to gain some line on him. The fish came up to the boat dead 2 hrs later. (105 inches)
