    Post up your pictures of your fish, this was the first one i was part of landing. A few seasons later I finally hit one myself via harpoon, can't find that picture right now.

    nice pic. unfortunately i don't have any pics of my first. only pic i can find is of my 2nd to last before we quit for awhile. think this was '98, dressed 400sh. rod/reel fish off ios. couldn't sell it, 40 fish hit the docks day before and of course we got the marathon runner (skinny/lean). also, lousy pic. i'm much better looking and thinner now :)

    This is my first one that I sold as Captain...

    The second picture is one I really like, first season with the new boat and first time I earned a living from fishing.

    I remember first paycheck I got I went and bought a new laptop at the Gateway store in Hyannis.

    Haha yeah just somthing that my father had laying around his shop... It was slow going lifting that fish... not very comfortable when its 5-6 footers, awful tipsy, so that is now the back up to a regular block and tackle... but does the job.
