Chesapeake Light Tower--Jet Ski Family Spade A Thon

Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking my sister Allison, Rachael, my 13 year old niece and Christopher, my 27 year old nephew spear fishing. This was Allison and Rachael's first time spearing.

We all met at my house in Poquoson and towed the skis to Virginia Beach. We departed Rudee Inlet around 0930 hours and went 16 miles offshore to the Chesapeake Light Tower. The sea conditions were great all day and we averaged about 25 mph going and 35-40 mph coming back. The water visibility was fair at about 20 feet and the spadefish were plentiful. Rachael is a quick learner and after I showed her how to get it done by spearing a couple, she had no problem shooting a couple her self. There was plenty of life out at the tower and we saw some amberjack, barracuda, triggerfish and a lot of bait fish. My sister did not want her daughter to show her up so she also got in on the action and shot her first ever as well. Christopher and I finished up getting our limits and we had our coolers full of 4 fish per person, 16 fish in all, before heading back at 1530. I had a great time with my family and was proud at how well my niece handled herself on the ski and in the water. We covered about thirty four miles and each ski burned about nine gallons. Another great day! Here are some of the pictures from our trip.

I am always impressed and amazed by your pictures. I sometimes get jealous of the Montauk and Cape Cod guys, but between your pictures and Kayak Kevin's videos, I am amazed by the vast variety of fishing we have in this area, something I am learning more and more since moving here.

I gonna show this to my 10 year old girl to get her inspired and give her a 3 year goal.

Keep them coming!
