We de­ployed our spread at dawn, just be­fore reach­ing the first drop in the con­ti­nen­tal shelf, and within min­utes the shot­gun bait got mauled. Capt. Mark “Mi­crowave” Cham­bers hooked the fish from the bridge of Reel Coun­try and passed the rod to the cock­pit, where the crew watched line evap­o­rate from the reel.

Cham­bers main­tained course and speed, and one of the flat lines got hit a mo­ment later. We had our­selves a dou­ble­header. Thanks to Luke Snedaker and Zach Daven­port’s fancy foot­work, a pair of wa­hoo, a 40- and a 30-pounder, hit the ice as the sun rose above the hori­zon. EARNED STRIPES: A nice wa­hoo comes aboard Reel Coun­try off North Carolina's coast.
