My Son's first deep sea fishing trip - Caught mostly Boccaccio with a couple reds and bank perch mixed in. Bait used was squid strips and anchovies.

Victor and the rest of the crew were outstanding--they treated him special on his first trip. Decent fishing and limits of fun!

So awesome - keep taking pictures of your trips - great to look back on - I have 2 boys now 11 and 9 - instant stress reliever looking at old fishing photos.
Kinda makes you a little sad at times though, doesn't it! It all goes by way too fast!! :hali_parkutuli:

To the Op. Keep up the great job of spending times with your kid(s). One day in the not so distant future, you will wonder where the time went.

They test us, they cost us, they stress us, and yet they are the coolest thing ever! Kids are the best!!!

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!!

Great to see, and it might have been even more fun for him that it was for you! There's something fascinating about pulling on something unknown from the abyss below... and now you may have hooked him! Looks like he enjoyed it.
