Thank you to the New Seaforth crew!

Targeted species: Anything with gills
Water conditions: Wet
Weather: Typical San Diego
Crew: Stellar
Conclusion: Best trip I've had in a long time

Headed out of Seaforth for an am 1/2 day boat with my son and father. Left the dock at 6:00 am and I start tying lines for the kid and myself. As I turn around I see my son glued to the rail looking really nervous. I ask him if he's okay and he replies yes, then I remember, he's never been on a boat this big and has no sea legs hahaha.
After about a 10 minute ride straight out of the bay we were fishing! First drop he picks up a good calico and I'm thrilled thinking this is going to be a good day. My father and myself played hook and hand with the kid for a solid hour of fish after fish until he asked for a break because his arm was sore. Awesome!
After a couple hours of non stop bass action we jumped to the kelp beds. First cast and I get sawed off. I smiled at my dad and said watch this! Tied on a leader and let the kid pull on cuda for the rest of the day.
Couldn't be happier with the outcome of the kids first charter. It is one I will remember forever and I hope he does too.

    Great job taking the boy out. Looks like a stellar trip. Keep creating those memories. I started taking my son out on 1/2 day when he was about 5. His first overnight he was eight, a light load on the Top Gun. He caught some Tuna, and it was an incredible experience. Now he is 21, out fishes me most days, and he ties my knots for me once in a while.
