Here's Mom getting into it, fighting an Aku tuna, 6 lbs, quite big for
It's the first fish of her life caught at sea, or anywhere else for that matter.
It's a double strike! Go kids go!
Another double strike, this time the two boys fight tuna.
Then the biggie moment of the trip. The main reel
screams and Bronson takes
the chair to fight something BIG!
Bronz grits his teeth and needs to lean into this one!
It's a mahimahi!!!! (Dolphinfish) Ain't she pretty?!
A prize to last a boy's lifetime! Bronson's first mahimahi!
Ouch! Bear mistakenly gafs it right through both eyes.
Bear drops the monster fish into the boat. Back up kids, it's still flapping!
A million dollar smile! Dad, can we mount it on my bedroom wall?
FINALLY, ON THE WAY BACK WHILE TROLLING IN MARLIN WATERS, HOUSTON GETS THE STRIKE OF HIS LIFE!
Don't lose it Houston!!!!!
Houston cranks, gains on the BIG fish. But no leaps, so it's not marlin, but-
The crew club away to bring the fish aboard dead for safety reasons.
One happy kid! Houston, eyes still bewildered, with the
of his life- a 30 pound Ono- as tall as himself!
