Thanks everybody for the kind words. My son is hooked on fishing, hopefully for life. He's a trout pond veteran, and I'm glad to see that he had no issues out in the open ocean.
He kept telling people on the boat he wanted to catch a yellowtail. And later on in the day, he was telling our relatives that he caught a tuna. So, it's also good to see that he's honing his fish telling stories. This is a very important skill for an angler to have.
I already feel like the time is going by so fast!!
