had a 5 hour Trip today with My Good Friend Loran and his buddy Jason
and both of their sons, Mitchell and Riley. I have been fishing with Loran
now for many years and have watched his son grow from almost a toddler
to now. Jason and his son Riley came last year as well. Those Dads are
Dads. I mean really good ones. They have so much patience and fun with
those 2 boys and that is what its all about.These kids caught some of
the fish today by themselves, but if Dad hooked a good one, they let the
kids reel it in.
is the first trip I have taken since July. I hurt my back in March and
couldn't really get over it , so I had major back surgery on Aug 20th.
This is the first time I have been in my boat since Aug. I explained this
to them before the trip, because ALL I could do was drive the boat where
I thought there would be fish, from all my years of doing this. Until
I heal up good, I probably can only do 1 trip a week.
had to cast and bait their own hooks. Since BRYAN FRITZ got my Power Pole
fixed, He owns Islands Outboard, anchoring was not an issue. I was still
extremely tired at the end of the trip. Water was clear, fronts were all
around, we got some rain and you will see the picture that caused us to
only stay 5 hours. I did not want to put those kids in any questionable
sea conditions. All of them caught fish. Riley caught the most ladyfish
about 10 of those, but we got on some really good fish and Kept enough
for a meal. The First fish, a nice trout was caught by Mitchell, followed
by his Dad, Loran. The Next one after that Is Riley with his Dad, Jason.
Again I had a great time and I hope they did too!
