I was lucky enough to fish aboard Hobie's new Mirage Pro Angler 12, exploring the famous Sewall's Point area, looking for linesiders around the many dock lights lining the shore. The boat performed excellent — despite a good chop on the river that evening, the Pro Angler cut through the mess nice and clean. And while we caught a few nice fish, I lost a snook that I'll remember for a long time. The strike was not remarkable and I couldn't tell the size of the fish in the initial moments of the fight. Just then, a monster of at least 20 pounds leapt from the water right in middle of the dock light. It felt like a throbbing bowling ball on the end of my light rod and my heart literally skipped a beat. The fish was so big, only three-quarters of its body cleared the surface. I knew I was in trouble — and alas, she broke off. But it was OK. I was happy just seeing that monster.
