Took dad fishing and he caught this thing on the troll 20 miles west of La Jolla with a small purple rapala (Hoo numbers are N32 49.4, W117 35.0).....fish almost chewed through the 80lb mono. Finished up the day fishing La Jolla kelp and putting 7 different species total on the boat Saturday! wahoo, yellowfin, skippy, yellowtail, calico, barracuda and bonita (all released but wahoo and yft). We were really lucky the "hoo" didn't chew through the line. Weighed the Hoo at the Marlin Club Saturday evening 31.2 lbs. Great day on the water with some great friends......definitely a once in a lifetime day catching a Wahoo in U.S water's on my own boat!




Tight lines!
