The Spring weather was beginning to heat up and give rise to perfect conditions for the pelagics. We were getting plenty of baitfish first up, so it was a good sign. Dad had a live bait on and I was busy going for squid. So we didn’t have to wait for long for dad to hook up. He called it a salmon judging by the strong fight, yet not as strong as the kingfish. After a patient 5 minute fight, we brought up a 55cm beauty! I was able to hook up on some squid towards the end of the day for a nice mixed bag.
