11/26 Boca, 11/25/LWI recap (Sails, King, Blackfins, bottom fish)

I am feeling SOOOO blessed to be back to work and 100% healthy!
Yesterday I got to run a GORGEOUS 41' Bahama for repeat client.
Dad was feeling ill so he trusted me to take his dad, brother and 7 kids out (from 12 to 17)

Got to the inlet and it was BLOWING 15-17 out of the East.
We were 1/1 on sails and caught 8 yellowtails, and a nice smoker king.
Although not glamorous the kids had a ball w chicken rig and were amazed at the variety.
(nothing great but pretty, Boxfish, Queen Triggers, Porkfish, Lane snapper etc etc)

Today I got to run a new 40' Intrepid out of Boca.
Saw Jiggy out there tight on a double! As I drove by we boxed a decent blackfin!
Alex's first ever tuna and first ever fish on the new boat. Ran to Hillsboro, picked up some live bait and went back out. Has some bad luck where we missed a sail that came up jumping and spit before we got tight.
Had 2 other sails we did get tight on going 1/3.
Had 2 more Blackfin SMASH small gogs on short kite bait and heard "WOW Dad did you see that tuna come up out of the water??" !! I love teaching kids and this gang was FUN!

Sleeping in tomorrow and let ya know how we do next week.
PS Baby Bob is looking for a girlfriend!!! LOL (He tried to have sex w my wife last night!! OOPS)
Sorry I am having issues w site from my mac and it won't upload pix
