We went every year for 10 years or so. 6 of us decided to give it a shot. First year we had no clue what the *ell we were doing. I jokingly asked the Captain; "so, what's it like to catch one of these things" and he answered; "well, imagine tying your line to the end of a car bumper".

Man, he wasn't kidding.   We got into some 50 pound class yellowfins and I got hooked up. I was just reeling it in - no problem. I said to myself "this ain't sh*t".... and then that sucker saw the boat...  Man - what a rush after that.  Hit 'em some years, not others. Went after a giant trying to hook it up one year but sadly it wasn't interested.

Great fun

I caught one about the same size, actually a few, but they sure did taste good. I use to go out alot for dolphinfish also, nothing better than a fresh mahi-mahi steak.

Like I said, I've only been deep sea fishing once, and I've only done a little bit of inshore fishing.  Most of my experience is on the Savannah River, or some smaller rivers, and on lakes.  I used to live on Lake Marion, which is the largest lake in the Santee-Cooper chain, so catfish, bream, crappie, striper, and largemouth are what I'm familiar with.
