Yes. I wasn't paying attention while fighting the fish though. The other guys in the boat had it on and were listening. i layed down and drank beer and listened for the entire 2nd half watching the other guys throw blackfin and a couple wahoos over the rails.

10-15 minutes for a big bull red. Probably wasn't even that long.
