So my son is going off to college in HI and has been really busy trying to get things in order before he goes. I said son you need to go fishing with me one last time before you go!! So off we went with my buddy Tim .
We launched out of NP with a nice half scoop and made some macs and set a course for the 209. We were trolling cedars out back. It wasn’t long before we saw our first small foamer Tim had a blowup on his stick bait but no hookup. We put on a Mac and slow trolled as they sunk out ….a few mins later ZZZZZZ we are on and my son is fighting his bluefin!! Gaff, rinse, and repeat!! Found another small foamer looked like small fish, threw all kinds of crap at them nothing, but the Mac out the back slow trolled BAM !! My buddy Tim and I let my son have the fun on this trip and the second one kicked his ass lol. Both fish were nice grade too !! Great trip for us !!

Amazing job!! We were out there yesterday throwing everything at them. We trolled the cedar for nothing from spot to spot. Should’ve gotten Macks! Great job!!! Nothing better than fishing with your son:)

    Back to "basics" Brothers.... no need for "flying or falling" gear at all. Simplicity at it finest!

    Great post and picts brother. What events do you think your son will remember of this summer... 10 or 20 years from now dad? Even his..." What I did on Summer Vacation" essay...lol... will cover his BFT adventure with you. Proud moment for sure dad!! Do they even do that anymore? Anyways ...good job.

    So rad to send your son off like that. Nice work. Interesting hooking method for those macks. Were they small Pacifics or on the bigger side? You troll in gear?
