Ron Swails and I were trolling small Clark Spoons for Spanish Mackeral. We had two lines on planers and two on the surface. All at once one of the planer rigs had a hard hit. Twenty minutes later Ron hauled in the huge Barracuda that measured 54 inches. My G3 is equipped with a hydraulic jack plate and a power pole and is equally at home in 12 inches of water to 100 feet in the Gulf.
