    My daughter jumped on the boat with me today. Every time we fish together she always claims she’s getting big fish between us. She slept on the way to the landing and slept through the boat ride to Catalina, we anchor up and we get cuda and Bonitos to the boat. My daughters still sleeping I’m working the surface irons and jigs the whole time for Nada. People are hooking up on the fly line but I refuse to fly line - By this time I’m switching lures, jigs, swimbaits and still nothing, My daughters still asleep. I finally hook up a Bonito on a Zakana jig, sweet! Continue to work artificials and nothing. I start bouncing the bottom in hopes I can get a halibut, that didn’t work out. My daughter is still sleeping. I get back to the surface action since cudas and Bonitos are still flying over the rail, still couldn’t get them to bite, My daughter finally wakes up, pins a Sardine on the fly line and instantly hooks up but loses it. Pins another sardine and bam she’s hooked up. She just smiles at me. She got big fish between us two. I would say fishing sucked as I felt we spent more time Motoring around than fishing, and all we targeted was Cuda and Bonito basically. But my daughter came out so I was a great day. 😀

    Brother....I can hear it now....in year 2050.... your daughter telling the grandkids about how her dad use to take her fishing "all the time" when she was young. Best time of her life ....she would say. Thats why I took you kids fishing ...she bragged.... "Pops" would love it.

    We can only hope our "legacies" are remembered and shared...by future generations. You made sure that would happen brother...taking her with you!! Kudos to you. Keep it up for sure. Theyll remember. Nice post....great picts
