Family Fishing
« on: May 09, 2018, 01:44:43 PM »

What itís all about.

 With social media full of people taking their fishing skills so serious and feeding their egos on their great catches.  If you can maintain a successful career, and still manage to provide and care for your family, you are truly blessed to have the privilege to pursue fishing.

I recently made two amazing trips that were so worthwhile.  1) Taking Triston in the boat for the first time, and catching hybrids with Bree and Crystal.  It was crazy helping Breelyn cast to busting fish, and watching Crystal try to fight fish with Triston in her lap.
2) Taking my Father our fishing before heís laid up for a couple months after knee surgery.

Hope you guys are able to get your loved ones out on the water this summer.

nicely done.

On my reservoir rig, I have a bimini top on slide rails (4 ft long). Helps to keep the kids out of the sun without having to wear hot hats.  Sure the top and straps get in the way, but it is worth it for not having to slather the kids up and helps to keep them cool (extends the fishing time).  Something to think about if you get a dedicated reservoir boat.  We also take lots of swim breaks too.  ;D

 ;D ;D I remember these days. Nothing like raising an outdoor girl! FYI the desire to be outdoors gets stronger the older they get.

It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly. ~Thoreau
