Mark Hopkins (The Hopper) with 12 pounds of Hawaiian Bonefish. The Coach
yea ok thats big
That kicks ass!
Notice the pic from the front of a skiff...new world with boat access?
Thanks again for sharing the adventure for those of us in the great white north.
That is a GOON!
By the way, that boat looks a little clean. I think I'd better come rub some dirt on it...
I'M GOIN' FISHIN'
From the look on Hopper's face he is pleased with his silver bullet action. Nice fishporn! Thanks for sharing Coach.
Holy shit Coach! What a beautiful fish, thanks for posting the shot :beer2:
Killer fish Coach, congrats.
Excellent Bone, but what really caught my eye were those royal blue skies and clear ocean waters, looks so warm and inviting...ah yeah!
Nice fish, brought back memories of my brief 6 months in the keys back in 1986.I hooked a bonefish that size at night,with a full moon,in about 7 inches of water,over clear sands.Talk about ghosts of the flats,this was surreal.Anyhow,set the hook and the fish headed for Bimini.Too bad I couldn't see the tangle of line and seaweed at my feet.Bye,Bye.Never got another crack at a big boy,though the routine 8 lber's weren't too bad.Beautiful picture.
Coach that is sweet I need to come visit. Thanks for the pic.
Nice O'io! :thumb:Looks like the windward side?
I'm headed to my favorite Oahu flat in february... I might even land one this year,:rofl:
You have no idea how much that aggravates me Coach every time you post a pic of one of your clients with an ear to ear grin and holding a trophy bone, and I think that should be me holding that fish. Dam, sweet fish.
Just sign me, "beyond envy".
It must suck to be you !!!!!
Damn, homey, that's a dandy! is that the biggest yet, pictured? Did you tape it's dimensions?
That is an absolutely beautiful specimen of a fish . . .
Remembering that we measure bonefish only to the fork and not to the tip of the tail, that Hawaiian Bonefish was 28 inches long and 16 inches in girth. The certified scale weight was 12.4 pounds. How ya been Richard? Coach
Coach, wow is all i can stay. Great Pic and thanks for sharing!!!
Beautiful bruiser you tagged for your client coach, nice job!
Couldn't have picked a better day to search for that trophy too.
