Capt. Charles "Fin" Gaddy steered Qualifier, his 57-foot Paul Mann, into a wide circle to pull our skipping ballyhoo directly into the chaos. As the long rigger bait moved directly beneath the diving birds, mate Chris Kubik said, "Now," and my wife, Poppy, threw her reel into free-spool, dumping the bait directly into the school of fish below.The bite came instantly; line flew off the reel, and after a few seconds of drop-back, she engaged the drag, and the circle hook found the corner of the mouth of the sail that had eaten it. Fish on! The sailfish put on the usual acrobatic display before Poppy brought it boat-side, where we placed a Billfish Foundation tag in its shoulder, cut the leader and sent the fish on its way, somewhat tired but in overall good shape.
