My brother, Eamon, is down for Thanksgiving. Naturally we went fishing today. False albacore was our target species.
We went with my buddy Scott and his son Griffin. We were stoked.
I was giving Eamon, who is a very good trout angler, a quick demonstration when a albie exploded out of the water with my fly in its mouth. Less than 5 minutes out of the inlet and we had our first fish hooked up. In shallow water these fish will really go and I watched my backing fly off the reel and said “So… That’s kinda how you do it then…” 😜
After numerous spinning rod hookups for Griffin and Scott..
…we got a hookup for Eamon and it was a nice one
