Got a call from Gabor Fari father of Nick the point guard from my CYO basketball team I coach. He wanted to give his son a fishing experience. Original plan was to fluke and seabass. Told him if he wanted to show him something cool, take the offshore route, he agreed.They brought along Nick's teammate John Henry and his Dad Steve Riccardi, and Mark Krute a regular with his son Nick. Left the dock before lunch to wait for the seas to subside a bit, first spot found the life, flying fish, but only bluefish. Second spot 10 miles further found even more life turtles, whales, but just one knockdown and a bonito. Next stop 15 miles further tons of bait 2 swings and misses nothing. Ran another 10 miles, and no life it was a desert. Clock was ticking and sun was going down and all we had were Bonito and Bluefish to show for our efforts. Made one more pass inshore and it finally happened had 4 rods go off, unfortunately 3 got off, but 1 made it to the boat! Great evening with some great family's.
