Yes,Yes ,Yes My very first catch! Ever. I have never fished before! Were the words of sheer thrill from Delores Raycraft and her family from Hamilton Ontario. Coincidently, her Son-in-Law is a district fire chief in Hamilton Ontario. (A profession near and dear to my heart.) Delores sat in the fighting chair and waited patiently for what seemed like several hours. At one point she pronounced to everyone, “if this rod gets bit, I’m bringing it in!” You probably see the rest of the story unfolding…. the rod did go off, Delores fought the fish and I landed it! A nice 70+ pound Striped Marlin! I know her Son-in-Law will be back to book another trip because after all, he had to go back to the fire station to tell them his mother-in-law was the only one to bring in the big fish. I must add that Delores and her husband and were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary as well.
We are looking forward to a return trip from to Hawaii and of course the Fire Hatt.
