Noelle's 1st Fish Trip 6-28-09

Noelle's 1st Fish Trip 6-28-09
Sun 6-28-09
I took my niece NoelIe on her 1st fishing trip yesterday..She is 7 now..I waited for the day she would ready to fish and to pass on what was passed to me from many generations before. and today was it!
I bought her her 1st rod - awesome -- many firsts for her today.
--------------------------------------------------
Low @ 10am
Temp - 65 am / 80 pm
water 65-67
wind ENE @ 10-15 - Choppy - but mostly form much boat traffic by 2pm
-------------------------------------------------
8:30 am...Fog rolled in early as I met her and my parents @ the PJ ramp ...a nice protected harbour..just incase..
I had everything ready to go.. "the 1st first rule is........" ...she answered "Always obey captains orders"
"the 2nd rule is..."......."go Slow - take your time around the dock" ....perfect. we boarded and I went through some operations with her as to dock/ nautical etiquette/rules...just as we near the end of the lesson and ...the dock master comes over and says we need to move soon..I look around the ramp..a mad rush of 1 other boat @ the ramp and 5 trailers in the lot.... -- "Right" - "I was just explaining the importance of patience around the dock to my niece...it's here 1st time on a boat..thanks for helping in the lesson.".... Now if had been any other time of day and nice I would have saved the lessons...so we slowly shove off as planned..

drove up by Pirates to do some aided driving lessons and more boat operations..as well as Practice casting..(a dehooked popper works wonders for this).. 1/2 hr she was having fun and really wanted a hook on that thing.. ok she was in a good amount of control the rod -- so off we went.. Calm as Glass inside.. wind ENE @10-15..
Decided to take her outside and see how the waves were...pretty flat...she Loved it.. got behind another vessel to soften the ride ...and it stops.. motor trouble..Merc. again.. move past and picking up speed.. she was so excited.. 1st in the seat then moved to the bow..it was her favorite part and mine as well..make you remember my 1st boat ride on a small boat,,,awesome.

headed to OFP and drifted for porgies -- pretty rocky --we'll just see how she does,,she loved it as well..( my Dad wouldn't fish this..) we rocked and fished -- her 1st Fish EVER... - SEA ROBIN! Common Sea robin. "What a beautiful fish" ,, yes it is. (Now she fished for Large mouth with my dad in FL in Jan ..and had NADA) So Catching any fish was priority,,,the plan was to anchor and chum for no stop action.. but she liked drifting ,, next drift --her 1st porgy..nice size 13" specimen,

Spotted some birds --explained their importance,,and we headed to find a small blue blitz.. she grabbed her spinning rod.. -- um no hooks..I looked for the hooks I had snap swivels for just this moment..could not find em.. so I Just quickly cast one of my own and hooked a nice 29" fish,,, that we both fought together. and quickly released him after a good fight.. a few more porgy drifts and casting yielded a few more Robins ( her 1st Striped Robin )and more porgies..but the bite cold.

took a Ride east.. "look birds"..... very good. drifted and casted .. she did so well. She like to measure each one..
~~fish on ... robin, 15"
~~Fish on ...Robin again with 5 following
~~fish on 1st FLUKE - 16"
~~Fish on...Porgy on plastics 12"
~~Fish on 1st BLUEfish..21"
~~Fish on more Robins and porgies..( most porgies were 12")
~~ and her last fish was a sundial 10" - which she loved... all released

now I guess counting runs in the family.. she had a tally going..
-------------------------------------------------------
Tally:
Noelle: 19 Fish
Uncle P: 12 fish
-------------------------------------------------------

3:30pm and she didn't want to go.. we got a call that we where going to be late for the postponed Fathers day [email protected] 4pm...
well -- nothing new there as I am always in hot water for fishing to long..getting back late..

back to a VERY - VERY busy dock -- that time in the morning was well worth it, as she did everything perfectly..and we were on the trailer and gone in no time.

a perfect 1st Trip.... so proud.
