2/4/10 Glynn Ferrell
Glynn, and family have been fishing with my father and I, for as long as I can remember. Glynn still shakes his head with a smile, remembering when I was only 3 or 4 years old; trolling a string of lures with no hooks over the transom of our family boat "Pamela". Waiting patiently for a strike... Now skippering the Kila Kila, he's seen me progress through the years, and thrilled to still be fishing with me.
He booked us for a full day, knowing how slow the fishing was; he understands you have to put the time in. Through the years we have had some great days fishing. He always arrives in the morning with no expectations, just enjoys the trip. This day he really enjoyed fishing, loving the extra comfort that the Kila Kila has to offer.
Again, fishing was very slow; we checked all the far to reach spots, searching for the fish. We got lucky towards the end of the afternoon catching a 30 pound short-nose spearfish for his son. Our spearfish, was the only fish caught out of the whole fleet today. That gives you an idea of how slow the fishing is at the moment.
We felt pretty fortunate to have a great fish for the grill, and another chance at a grander.
