Becky Hogan is one tough-as-nails angler from Northeast Florida, and on her past trips with us she has scored big on Sailfish and Marlin.

This year she brought her whole family down for the adventure, including her two son’s whose military schedules required that this trip be planned far in advance.

Captain William set course for Sailfish City and immediately the Hogan family snagged the first of five pez velas.

Safe releases all around by First Mate Alex.

They topped off the trip with the biggest Ponpano we’ve ever seen:

Seriously, we usually don’t even include this species in our fishing report because of their relative abundance but this manhole-cover sized beast will make enough ceviche to feed a village!
