    Sure would be nice to see those days again. I remember one day back in the 70s when almost every boat in the Destin fleet was balled up in a hundred acres or so just southwest of the pass. Half the kings we caught were on handlines with a big Clark Spoon tied to the two back cleats. The deckhand just bailed them into the box.

    I'd be ashamed to catch so many now, back then it just seemed like it would last forever.

    I read/think about fishing a lot more than I get to fish - so it goes.

    Yep, shark fins can be seen throughout the first minute and a big yellowfin makes an appearance around 1:42. Also looked like a dolphin fin or two sprinkled in. Thanks for sharing!
