To be fair, we had 3 fish hit us, hooked two of them but lost them both before coming boat side. The second one I actually saw take a fluke right next to the boat - was about 2.5 to 3lb by the length of it, but despite letting him run a couple seconds it was on a short line and I had to set it or pull it free. I set it, and then it pulled free anyway. Jim had one on a jig that charged straight at him and got slack enough to shake it loose.
