On August 18, 2019, my 15-year-old son, Cooper Allen, landed a 211-pound swordfish 12 miles off the coast of California. We were fishing for 50to 80-pound tuna on our private boat off San Onofre Beach when we had a shot at the swordfish, which he caught using a live mackerel on a Shimano Talica 30 spooled with 50-pound-test line. The fight was incredible, taking over seven hours for us to finally boat the fish. Cooper was hooked up from 10:40 a.m. until 5:41 p.m.
