Tuna are here…… Just ask 10 year old Dylan!

August 22nd, 2013

Dad Mark posts from the SeaDevil:

Wed. Ran to the 601 with my 10 year old son, Dylan, and my good friend Mike, both of which had never been tuna fishing. Fished 3700/12250 for 8 nice grade tuna. The biggest was caught by Dylan weighing in at 26lbs with a solid 20+ pound average. 10 hook ups, double triple, quad and a single, and only dropped 2. Not bad for 2 beginners. I couldn’t ask for a better day than to see my son and my buddy both pinned to the rail with reels screaming.





Friday was Fiona’s day with dad off HMB…

Discover Angling kids trip was a great success

June 27th, 2013

Richard posts today that the Discover Angling kids trip was a great success. We had kids from the Sunnyvale Pal group out on the Hulicat for a shallow water rockfish/salmon trip. The kids caught 147 rockfish and 3 lings to about 10#’s. The icing came trolling back to the barn when we caught 3 salmon two of which were silvers that were released. Each kid went home with a bag of fillets and a great big smile. I guess we all went home with big smiles and a feeling of pride and satisfaction.

Tom Mattusch and Jake Carrier (the Hulicat deckhand) were superb and we want to thank them for another great trip. We appreciate their hard work and efforts in making this trip a great success.

We were fortunate to have a group of mentors that were some of the finest that we have had on a trip. The mentors were Mel Kon, Baja Bev Seltzer, Dave Doubledee, William Odum, Bill Doo, and Swiss Joe. We are proud and honored to have had the support from these volunteers.
