We spent the first weekend out on the water as a family this season. Pretty decent water, too. Friday night was a bit choppy an my four year old asked: "Daddy, can you turn the bumps off?" This little guy cracks me up! We anchored up at about 11pm after setting the pots. We awoke to an overcast but flat water morning. I brewed some coffee and had cinnamon rolls going in the oven. Life is good! The kids wanted to fish, so I set them up with buzz bombs and they jigged away for some juvenile sable fish.
The kids could fish for these guys all day. Sometimes we don't leave the hook except to check the pots. Good times.
This was the first time I had shrimped this particular spot and the bugs were there in fair numbers. We pulled three times and ended up with about 30 pounds of tails.
My little guy was pretty proud of this one. He set it aside and wanted to make sure it ended up on his plate. I cannot blame him.
