 Wow Russ!!!

Sure is a beauty mate.  Like you said just need to get her in the water and christen her with some fish blood. 

Can’t wait to hear how she went with that nice donk not even to talk about the rest of the work that you did.   Btw like the bimini top.

 I actually have a rig where I have an 8/0 hook with a smaller size 1 or 2 hook wired up to it so it’s hanging off the bend of the big hook. If the pickers are bad, I drop that down with the small hook baited, hook up a picker, usually a wrasse, instant live bait. That’s caught dhues when nothing else would.
