So I took my daughter out on her first overnight trip on the Endeavor fishing for bottom feeders. After we filled the bags we did a few drifts for game fish. We knew it was a long shot but we had time to kill. She caught a halibut and the only one to do so. Now she is hooked on fishing. Next trip for her will be my annual memorial day weekend trip on the Pacific Voyager to catch her some tuna.😊

....."you know, it was a overnight trip with my dad that got my start in fishing". Thats what she'll be saying for many years brother. A tribute to you. Good work. Be safe out there.
So true. I'm a result of that concept. Fishing bluegill on Hume Lake with a stick and a set line probably helped, too. 🎣

I use to go Hume Lake when I was 5-7 years old with my brothers Dad. Church retreat. Good memories.

    Looking forward... and back....Brother I believe we're lucky to be born in the "Golden Age". Children of those WW2 veterans.
    Although at times I too wish I was younger.... in the end... I wouldn't change a thing. Happy I'm not 25.... with things going the way they are. Wouldnt trade it for anything.
