    I learned something growing up from my older relatives. Those that retired and had nothing to do got older a lot faster than those who had interests and hobbies.

    Staying active, both mentally and physically, seems to be key for getting the most out of the later years (and life in general). Fishing is of course a great way to do that...but you'll have to delay that retirement a bit to earn enough money to indulge the hobby, LOL

    Great story! I'll share it with my buddies. I'm taking some newbies on the next Excel 3 day trip. This will really help with getting them prepped. Thanks for sharing and congrats on a great trip! See you on a longer one shortly! The weather is nicer in prime time :)

    Here are my suggestions as a first timer.

    Put on the scop patch 12 hours before you get on board.

    Eat lightly for the first day.

    Ask the crew members for help when you need it. They'll help you catch fish.

    Bring a fighting belt with.

    Pack light.

    Learn to tie a few knots.

    Ask the crew members for help when you need it. They'll help you catch fish.

    Now youve gone and done it...and youre going to want to do it again and again. Lifes too short to fish smaller boats. stick with your buddies recommendations.
