King and Wifes first sail

Plan today was to get out real early and pick up some gogs before the crowd showed up. Took out my pregnant wife and 6yr old daughter so i was really hoping for some quick action. Set up in 120 off breakers and before i could get a second bait out the starboard rigger goes off. 5 mins later we have a 21lb king in the boat. Quick clean up and i put out another bait. Again before i could get out a second bait, sailfish on! Gave it to the wife to fight. Got it to the boat with a clean release. Ran out to 600 and trolled weedlines for about an hour but nada. Back at the ramp by 11. Phil Foster was closed by then so it was a breeze unloading. All in all a great day with the family.
