    Fished from 7pm till 7am the next morning. Pounded 3 different zones and finally started to get my first runs around 2am. Had a few that never went tight and finally at 3am I get one run that nearly loaded the rod down good gave it a good set and my mono dumps out like no tomorrow. After a good 15 min fight I had her near the sand and my buddy yells out it's F...ing!!!! Huge! She taped out at 48 inches ball park on the measurements says 80 to 90lb which felt about right. After a few more in the 40lb range we called it a night or should I say morning at 7am right before the rain. 6inch tuna steaks on a 6/0 she ate it like candy. Untill next time ....

    Nice fish and session . I have not targeted rays but have certainly caught incidentals . Question , due to not having knowledge of ray physiology , The appearance of entrails at the vent , Barotrauma ? Did the fish abort or recently pup or breed ? Just have not seen that before in other posts with pictures . Thanks for the report . WR
