This 5+ pound monster was caught on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017 at George Lake. I used a nightcrawler, and he was pulling drag the whole time. When he took the bait, my rod that was leaning on a rock almost flew into the lake. When I set hook, the most epic fight of my life began. A 2-pound leader versus a 5+ pound fish, I could feel the line stretch, as he pulled drag. The fight lasted for at least 7 minutes. As he got closer to shore, I couldn't believe his massive size. Two days later, on Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2017 I got engaged to my boyfriend. I caught my trophy fish and snagged a fiancé; turned out to be the most epic trip. (Of course, the fish was the better catch.)

Took my fourth solo trip for swordfish this summer and it paid off with a 188-pounder. Took 2½ hours to land it on 65# on a Talica ii 25, on a custom Milton GTS rod. Used a squid for bait. Got it near Catalina doing the deep drop method.
