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?
6”-8” macs and I have it in gear with light drag set. When they grab it let them run for a bit and goose up the drag !!

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 !!

    LOL 'they were nice grade' THEY WERE HUGE! Those are some very nice fish, not the little 20lb or 30lb guys.

    Slow trolling seems to be the new 'secret' .... Did you just standard nose hook the bait? Or something else fancy? What lb test line?
