I would like to share with you a memorable day of fishing with my family.

 

Memorial day weekend My 4 year old son my wife and myself were fishing in the Atlantic Highlands on our boat.

 

Light breeze out of the east beautiful day, and we are hammering the fluke on 1/4 oz bucktails squid & spearing. My 4 year old is having a blast.

 

Then my pole gets hit with one thump and the tip is showing the weight of the fish at the other end. My son sees it and says "Daddy can I reel that one in" I say sure. As he pulls it out of the rod holder and sets the hook I can see it's something good. I watch the rod tip and see the tell tale sign

of the head shakes. Oh boy take it easy son it's a good one. He pays me no mind and just keeps bearing down on the reel even reeling against the drag.

 

Just a brief fight ( Even less than what it takes me to bring in a 5lbr) he has the fish to the surface. My mouth dropped and my eyes couldn't believe it. I slipped the net under and flipped it in the boat where it started to flop around to the point where I thought he was going to get out. I wrestled him down put him in the cooler sat on it and smiled.

 

This was 3 years ago and my son still owns bragging rights.

 

My son wasn't able to hold the fish up, so I tied him up on a rope (the fish that is) and took the picture.

 

Just wanted to share a picture and a Proud Father heart.gif moment. wink.gif

ha beautiful fish, id take the credit for the fish if i was you wink.gif you taught him how to fish and set him up and did the task i hate, netting a fluke...i ahve two sons that fish with me, now theyre older (18 and 15) and my 18 year old son is a better fisherman than i am, but i hate when my 15 year old son tries to horse in a trophy fish, you know fighting against the drag, but its great when they land the fish, makes you feel good

 

i love when fluke pounce on the bait, pumping the rod trying to make a run for the bottom and cant forget those head shakes, esp when they spit the hook at the surface frown.gif

 

anyway what was did that thing tip the scales at, its bigger than your kid biggrin.gif nice fishclapping.gif
