Went fishing for Walter and ended up catching Patrick

Surprise catch of the day video!

It was a beautiful August fishing trip to Langara Island on the NW tip
of the majestic Queen Charlotte Islands.

Fishing had been steady using Pure Glow Jig-a-Lu's. We had boated
numerous lingcod, snapper and a few halibutt. We were short a few and I
was dropping back down to try for another on my new Okuma Nomad travel
rod and a Penn Battle II 8000 reel when I was hit again.

Fish pulled and pulled and then would take a breather. I slowly worked
the fish up from 320 feet.

Finally we could see what the awesome battle yielded!
