Took my wife and son on the Shogun for a 2.5-day trip last week (I was out of town after that so didn't get to post sooner). This is my son's first multi-day and first overnight trip. Several times he said he couldn't wait to go again, it was very rough Saturday night though which took some wind out of his sails (even a couple crewmembers were queasy). My wife was sick about half the trip but managed to have fun and catch 4 nice yellowtail, her first real yellow tail other than the aquarium size throwbacks on tuna trips. She was amazed how hard they pull and really likes fishing the YoYo jigs. My son couldn't wait to show his photos to the guys he works with.

    Way to get the family out there and on em'! I bring ginger candy along, which helps with the motion issues. Maybe you can try patches? Always hate to hear of people getting discouraged due to motion sickness.
    Congrats!

    AWESOME SIMPLY AWESOME! Did the same with my son on a 3 day last September he talks about it all the time and is ready to go again. I'm betting you've started an itch that will need constant scratching as the fishing bug is very contagious not quite as bad as chicken pocks but close very close!!!:D

    Hard to tell, from the smiles, who enjoyed the trip more.

    I love to fish, but I have as much fun helping my son and wife (she's pretty self sufficient out there) catch fish. I get lots of chances so it's awesome to see him so happy catching fish.
