Three generations back on the water together for an evening of coastal hooping. My son, myself, and my dad. First trip of the season.

Managed 6 legals and about 10-12 shorts. Pulled either 3 or 4 strings. 20-27 feet of water. Old, frozen sardines for bait.

VERY impressed with my son (age 8). He pulled hard, and caught 4 of the 6 legals in the nets he pulled. Huge difference from a couple seasons ago when I took him.

So cool Chris! She's adorable! My daughter likes going on the boat, but not fishing. My son enjoys fishing a lot. He's a mini-me! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Love it!!! So awesome that she's still going out on the boat with you! My daughter enjoys doing some cruising, but not fishing. Love having the kids on the boat with me! Thanks for sharing the photos!

Ah, I remember it like it was yesterday. Now my son is bigger than me, going for his BA in Engineering, out-fishes me and just turned 25. And every moment spent was priceless.

His turn to take me fishing soon! :D

Enjoy every minute!

Love it! Much like me and my dad. Although I'm slightly older than 25. Nothing better than fishing with my dad and son. Memories to last a lifetime!!!!

Saturday has been locked-in since we rested last weekend.
I know we'll be out early, just not sure how early. Friday night? LOL! Who knows at this point.

Your son has done better at 8 because he's no longer a rookie.

Good job dad for the on the water training. Also as a grandpa myself I bet your dad was as proud as a man could be.

Very true. And a couple years older and bigger definitely helps as well. My dad loves seeing my son catch fish and lobster and being on the water with us. As he likes to say sometimes, this is why he has a boat.
