Looks like the AA has ruined another young angler just as he is getting started in the game.

"Young ten year old Jack Hebdon boated his 125lber hooked and landed all by himself – a Fish of a lifetime for a well deserved, good angler."

18' Bayrunner, but I like the American Angler and the Red Rooster III
10 years old, hooked and landed that one, Buck and a Quarter! His boots look like they've got some time on the water.
Pretty sure he's making plans for his next trip, hoping for another personal best. Good job, Jake!

Now thats a fishing trip! I was in my 30's and when I caught my first tuna and I was pretty stoked. At 10 years old, a trip like this with a fish like that will be imprinted in the brain. How did that fish not pull him overboard? Good job!

Mike,

Congratulations to Jake and props to you for giving him the opportunity and support to make this happen! Wish every fishing father had the means, motive and opportunity. Many do but they just don't take the final step to make it so.

Well done and a great outcome. I am sure this was not his first rodeo but it will likely be one he remembers the rest of his life.

My avatar shows my first real YFT (on the AA). Took me 50 years to make it happen and my father had been gone for 30 of those. I think of him every time I wet a line. I think of my son every time I see a young angler having fun. Reminds me that I need to make a concerted effort to get my son down to San Diego and out on the AA. We fish a lot up here but he has never tangled with a tuna.

All the best to you both!
