    I think it’s a flier he’s after, but no doubt the king offered a nice quartering shot with a 20ga.
    Be proactive about improving public waterfowl habitat in South Carolina. It's not going to happen by itself, and our help is needed. We have the potential to winter thousands of waterfowl on public grounds if we fight for it.

    I've seen wahoo do that on baits before, but never the height that king got.

    I once saw a school of wahoo jumping. I don't know why and I've never seen it since. I didn't even know they schooled. They came towards the boat and jumped at the same time, spread out over an area of about half an acre. They looked like a big pod of dolphin swimming at speed jumping as they went. There must have been fifty of them. Some of them were inside the lure spread. I was in disbelief until two reels started screaming. One fish tore up my moldcraft hooker chain. He paid for it.

    I had a giant king do that in N.C. about 3 miles off the beach. My buddy tied the knot to the leader and after a few good runs he was at the boat. One dive under the boat and the knot came undone. I just stared at the beach and contemplated shooting my buddy.

    We laugh about it now but I donít think we talked for 30 min after it happened. Fish was 40+ pounds easily.

    Strange you say that. Some buddies got into them stupidly thick a few years back.
    Landed 17-18 fish, and had additional fish too ripped up to clean.

    They claim when they would get a hooked fish to the boat, there would be 3-5 others with him, ripping chunks off.

    Never heard of such before or since.

    I’ve never seen more than 2 together under debri, and they’ve never really been “together.”
    One’s always 50ft or so from the other.

    Running out one morning in a 21 foot center console, wide open on a slick ocean, one skied about 3 times higher than that about 50 yards ahead of the boat. Calculating that parabolic arch against the speed of the boat in my mind, all I was able to say was "hooooley sh......" as the 25 pound king came right down in the bow. A fresh unhooked king is like a wide open chain saw on meth. I spent the first 5 minutes standing on the console watching a bucket full of rigs, an open tackle box, and a gaff get thrown out of the boat while my buddy chased that fish around with the billy, swinging wildly and taking chunks out of the gel coat. We finally subdued that fish after she totally wrecked the boat. When it was all over, we saw the bucket floating about 200 yards away with all of the rigs still in it.
