The little man on his first fishing trip back in September
Nothing but blue water and blue sky
Yesterday was the perfect day, low 80's with little or no wind. The water was like glass. Even the moon and stars were aligned (the lunar schedule effects fishing). Being a Friday the well-known hot spots for fish were not over-crowded. Everything was perfect. After an awesome day on the water, it was time to head home to family with supper.
I was welcomed home with this sweet drawing by Mommy and the little man.
Yes, Daddy's home and he's got supper!
Angelo makes the best pie in town!
What I have failed to tell you was that the trip was marred with problems. A friend of ours was going to take me out, but he bailed. He bailed because he fished all day Thursday, and was dead tired. Tired, because they caught 12 keeper Grouper, 4 Amberjacks, and a couple Kingfish. So we took Dave's boat out. His boat is not an off shore boat, but we had intentions of trying to go out far enough to get into some fish. That was until we realized we had no gas in the boat (we were already on the water). Apparently someone sifened gas out of the tank at the storage lot. We fished inshore for a little, and I could talk to you about the one that got away, but o well. All I can say is that a bad day fishing beats a great day at work. I am looking forward to actually getting out into the Gulf in the near future.
Cheers and Hail
