Dave Long from California is here on vacation with his family and friends. They fished with us today on a 4 hr trip in morning.
He’s had asked to focus on catching something for his kids and we told him we would try our best. We had explained to him that the Ono bite has slowed down a bit and most of our bouys that usually hold tuna weren’t producing right now. So it makes it harder for us to find that sort of smaller game action for the kids..
They were all very patient with us and hanging in there for their bite! We were unable to find any of those smaller game fish for the kids to fight so we were starting to wonder when we would take a strike.
We could tell that there was life in this area that we working but could we get a fish to bite? We hung in there for one more pass before we head in to trying to get lucky. And sure enough we did! We hooked into a very nice sized spearfish and his son David Long who is only 14 years old jumped in the chair and fought his fish! He was able to land his fish and make the day! They were also happy to take home some good eating fish!
