That was the measurement on the rusty tape. For reference, the fly next to it is just about 6"
36 1/2" is a lot larger than 5 lbs
Must mean 26 1/2 - though a 36” blackmouth off the beach would be a fine thing to see! Nice fish!
Wow! Another great fish! Nice! I have to use bigger flies....
That's an awesome fish, and you worked hard for it. Well deserved, but I too am having a hard time with 36 1/2".
[edit: OK, if that's a 6" fly..... WOW!]
26 or 36 still a legal blackmouth for the table on a fly. either way impressive. the fish of 5,000 casts.
Is that your second blackmouth in less than two weeks?!? That’s amazing! Fish size and how long you fight em are all just details, and it’s customary for fishermen to take a, “don’t let the facts get in the way of a good story” approach . Anyway, I was trolling this morning off the point where you got that last fish you posted on here. Didn’t see any other boats bring in fish while we were out. Switched to the fly rod and took a few minutes to hunt down some of those coho I got into yesterday and got skunked on that attempt too. Nice to know somebody did alright.
Weight was only a guess, don't have a scale.
I've only found fish there in the evening outgoing. Hit the point early am, it holds bait.
after the sun hits the water they're gone over the drop off.
A great fish and doubly so from the beach on the fly. In recent years the fish checkers at Everett (fish coming from MA 8-1, 8-2, 9) rarely see more than a single fish that size for the entire winter blackmouth season.
well done sir!
Theres at least a dozen people on this forum putting in a good effort for beach BM and this guy TJ hooks 3 and puts 2 on the beach while everyone else is goose eggs (unless DimeBright and Stonefish are keeping their cards close). Incredible. Congrats dude!
My report from Sunday: 6-8am, green/white sandlance tube on the sink tip, 0 BM, 1 coho.
Yep, I am 0-5 specifically targeting BM this winter with one fish on that had potential. Lots of rezzies but no BM (unless you count the 13 incher I caught ).
Time in water always pays off in the end!

I wasn't at all trying to take away from his accomplishment. If anything just trying to give him even more credit considering a 36 1/2" BM is pushing 20 pounds and he guessed only 5-6
Nice fish, but tell me where you get 6" long bucktail. I want.
No blackmouth for me this weekend, but I tried again up north. It certainly is not easy! Congrats to TJ Fisher and others who have had success.
