Ray book HighNoon for a morning 3/4 day trip I’m hopes of putting his son on a few Hawaiian fish. Ray is a long time skipper from Seattle fishing many years in Alaska for Black Cod and many other species. He new fishing wasn’t always a guarantee but we assured him we would do our best to catch his son a fish. We put out the lures and made a few passes on one of our favorite points. After a few passes our long rigger comes don’t a mahi mahi takes to the air. We get his son in he chair and he starts the fight. Just feet away from the boat the mahi does one final jump and throws the hook laughing as he swims away. Bummer. We set back up and catch some bait fish which we had a blast doing. We then put a few live baits out in search of a monster. Our baits would not be in the water for two minutes before getting hammered but somehow we just couldn’t get one hooked. After going through all of our baits we set back to troll home when our stinger comes down and we boated a nice Ono for them. Ended up being a great day.
