A 3 year "Quest 7-1" was completed at the end of April, 2016. We put in a bunch of hours scanning, mapping, game planning, miles on the truck, hours on the motor and time away from home with one goal. In one hook set, our lives changed completely. It wasn't like we expected to break the record, but when we did it there was almost a feeling like we were meant to. We were prepared for this fish. Every cast was a focus of one big bite. Every cast was to a specific spot that we could see on our graphs. Every cast was the thought that this could be the one! The cast was perfect. The hook set was perfect. Keeping the fish down was perfect. The net job was perfect. Getting the fish certified was perfect. Releasing the fish alive after officially breaking the record was perfect. "Quest 7-1" was complete and we now had the record at 7lbs 3oz. However, the journey is not over. There are more fish to catch. There are more records to try and break. Every trip has a meaning. Every hour of preparation puts us closer to accomplishing our next goals. Our goal is to take luck out of the equation.
