Best fishing trip yet

Unread postby Hooker » Fri Aug 26, 2016 7:00 pm

So I took two of my girls fishing the other day. The whole trip was to give them the experience and it was all about them. Starting off with getting them all excited the night before. It was easy waking them up in the morning and our first stop was breakfast at the marina, Higbees. After they ate we looked at the boats along the marina and then we loaded mine up. Took them on a 6 mile easy ride to some fishy water. They were excited and cared more about catching a shark then anything. We snagged some bunker for bait and also rigged up with shedder crab. The bunker got constant attention from bluefish that really gave my girls a workout. They caught their sharks , a bunch of blues and even a few fluke while anchored. We fished at their pace and when my youngest was done we headed in. The best part of the day was the conversations, I was asked and got to explain everything and anything they saw.... Why dad??? Haha. Anyway we had a fun and rememberable day that I captured on video to watch in the future. What a blast.

Way to go Dad. That's time together that they will always remember. Dad of the year award.
My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell my guns and fishing rods for what I told her I paid for them.
