late july 2003. eric is 12, not a huge fisherman, and im still learning the ropes. we had been fluking out at the ji bouy with his buddy and dad, put 4 or 5 keepers in the box on bucktails. got a bit snotty so lets go inside and belly. mid july, saturday afternoon, 85 degrees, im in 6 feet of water outside the channel in sea dog creek, can you say googan? capt lou, RAILED, drifts by slowly not 15 feet away as the clicker goes off. eric makes quick work of one very very stupid 30" bass and gets a huge standing ovation from the entire captain lou. so loud other boats start coming over, like whats going on here. kid was mortified, still is, if you care to remind him about it.
before the boat, town dock in bellmore behind what was then michaels restaraunt. audrey is about 5, maybe six. learned how to cast the spinner, bait the hook, play with the killies, and outfish all of us 5:1, in one afternoon. can barely get her on the boat now, let alone fishing.
i got a million of these, they are my best memories of fishing. great topic blaze.
