The firsts continue

Today Brian brought his son Brian and his two grandsons Tyler and Aiden out for an afternoon trip. We headed out and it took a while to get to where I thought that we could pick up a few Hickory Shad. Shortly Aiden hooks a shad and after a short fight the hook pulled. Soon after that he hooks up again with something that didn’t want to come in. After some good rod pumping we landed a Blackfish on an epoxy lure. Aiden’s first and the first time that I’ve ever seen a blackfish hit a lure. We left in pursuit of some stripers. We joined the fleet and then moved off to our own fish. Today these guys just weren’t that interested in eating. However Tyler did manage to convince a striper that his lure was the real deal. Brian sr. picked up a rod. made one cast and landed a nice sized Hickory. Then he put the rod down and said ” that’s how you do it boys ” and let them try to catch up. Brian Jr. kept a blue on right up to the boat until it decided to part company. He did manage to land a nice sized gull that was released unharmed.Two days in a row we caught fish and fowl without any duplicates. Still had a fun day with some good people.
