1 hour of fishing is enough.

A few days ago my son Brian and I hit up LJ for a chance at a YT.

It was Brian's first surf launch, he is 7 years old so the wife was a little nervous about the dangers. ( me too a little)

Launched with a few friends around 6 am. Brian was in the front of the tendem and took one to the face. He LOVED it!

Looked for bait, it was out there but I only got two pieces of squish, my buddy Jim game me two more pieces.

Brian is soaking a bait while I'm working the bait jig. I look over at him and he is quietly working a bendo! WTH! The kid did not even say a word, just holding on for his life. I put my leg under his rod to provide a little more angle so the tip of the rod is up and told him to crank it. Every time the fish took drag, Brian would say " man, this fish must be really mad at me!"

Another friend cruisedby and snapped a few photos and offered some encouragement.

Finally we see color, his first YT at color. I got lucky on a reaching gaff shot and put Brian's first YT in his lap!

A few minutes later I got mine too.



Brian, you want to keep fishing or go home? Lets go home Dad, we don't have that much room in the freezer.


Leaving the grounds by 7:30.

Brian #25
Me #24

This is the best post I have read in a long time. Making memories with the family, what an awesome day.

I think Brian caught both, I've heard of his fishing skills, and I've seen yours...

Good seeing you two out there. I was on the beach when you launched and had to laugh when I saw your boy take the wave in the face. LOL. He's a trooper. Congratulations to both of you.
