    This is for 6-7-17
    It's my girlfriends first fishing trip ever in her life and we are fishing the most picky fish in the ocean. Sounds fun right.
    Got out, saw tons of life. Birds, foamers, everything you want to see.
    Also was fishing with the legend "Dart" also known as bob fletcher. Fished with him multiple times.
    When we approached the first couple of schools they sank out.
    Wasn't till mid day we got our first bite.
    That school hung around for at least 30 mins.
    Finally the next school, I got bit. Told my girl to come here! Now!
    She takes the rod and plays tug a war with a 20 pounda. Hooked him on 20 with a small size 2.
    After it takes her up to the bow we finally land it and she is stoked! Her first fish ever and it's a bluefin. Sick first catch if I do say so myself.
    Later it was a very slow. We stopped on one last bird school and dart and I hooked up. Little bigger grade 30-40
    Hooked on 20 again.
    Dart and I landed our fish and that was a wrap.
    We saw 150s jump clean out the water. So rad!
    All in all, slow day. Excellent day. Boat got 9 we got 2.
    I was so proud of how she handled the rod and listened.
    Cheers! IMG_2234.JPG IMG_2233.JPG IMG_2015.JPG

    Great job! Your a better Dad than I. Years ago, my son tried to get me to pass him a yellowtail. I just laughed and said no way, its Fathers Day. Seriously, well prepared Bluefin.

    Outstanding!! Food porn looks amazing. I took my gf out for her first time on a 1/2 day last year then convinced her to go on a 5day on the Rooster. She loved it and wants to go again! Keep it up and your friends are going to tell you you're crazy if you don't put a ring on it :)
