My plan was to catch like 20 Oscars on fly but the guy fishing up front took my spot at the back of the boat. We had switched spots so I could lift the trolling motor then he wanted to stay in the back, so..therefore,was no longer able to fly fish from the back of the boat. I might go back in my boat and make a longer video.Did catch like 4 or 5 in this video
