Long post so we will start with the report.

Monday night had a BIG something break me off. No other hits that night.

Tuesday... Sea robins..., but met up with Bassman and shot the breeze for a bit while chunking. Good seeing you again.

Wednesday Triggers. Someone was supposed to join, but 15 miles was too far for him to drive to get in someone elses truck. Slow pick but managed about 8 or so, 5 which were decent enough to take home and get some good filets. Caught them all on the outgoing, and was hoping the incoming was gonna be better, but with it came the storms, and then the slip gut. Where the hell is all this slip gut coming from all of a sudden. Think Ill hit it up again tomorrow.

Fried up tonites catch with some sauteed sting beens and home made Garlic bread. Partnered with a Shock Top wheat IPA, the citris in the beer really accented the flavor of the fish.

While I was eating I started to remenice about my old man. Although still alive we dont speak very often. I guess it was because I fried the fish. Something my father had always done. I remembered how we used to rent a skiff from old harbor marina or many of the other places like it. My pops had his own 6HP evinrude and it probably saved him half every time. I cant remember a time we were skunked. I remember the fluke had to be as long as the cushions he had to keep. He had one red one and one blue one and they were always hanging with the net, or anet as my father lovingly termed her. My favorite way to eat fish was always fried. It was great to watch him filet all those fluke and them fry them up outside in a plug in fryer. My mother never let him cook fish in the house. Although she would eat fluke if it was fresh, she could not bear the smell of fish in her house (then I go and marry someone with the same terms and conditions, way to go Jay). So I guess it was the fried fish that got me thinking, that in my opinion there is no better way to eat them.

Thanks for teaching me how to fish Pops, my wife will never forgive you. Thanks for teaching me how to filet. Thanks for everything you taught me, especially that it doesnt matter whether your catching fish or not, just that your having a good time. Love ya.

I'll bet he enjoyed it just as much. I know I do with Ryan.

Glad my dad got me started too.
