Default My junior anglers first overnighter

Me and my 10 year old 1st mate left our dock at OB on Tuesday morning and headed to the Elbow for our first stop. We trolled in decent green water and immediately had a whitey come up in the spread and rob two of our ballyhoo rigged Ilanders without getting a hook up. We continued to troll the Elbow back SW and hooked up with a decent Wahoo. We mounted a stand up battle station on the boat last year so he could handle the larger fish on his own. He made fairly short work of the Wahoo and I gaffed it and in the fish box it went. Shortly after that the water quality started to decline so we packed up and ran to an area north of the Spur for some Sword fishing. We set out two baits and fished all night. About 4:00 AM one of the rods went off. My little buddy strapped himself into the stand up station and I put the rod in the gimbal for him to do to battle. After a few long hard runs he had the sword alongside the boat ready for me to gaff. We made a few pictures shared some high fives and laid another good fish to rest in the fish box. Shortly after day break we found a school of nice Yellowfin busting the surface and managed to get one of them to eat one of the small naked rigged ballyhoo we had out in our spread. Into the battle station junior went again except this fish gave him a run for his money more than the other two. I refused to take over and told him either he finishes the fight or I could cut the line. That was not going to happen. He brought the Tuna up to the boat and I stuck the gaff in our third nice fish of the trip before icing him down. We both decided it was time to head back to OB and get a big burger for lunch. We are both very blessed to be able to live this life.
