- croaker. My kids have been wearing out the bottom fishing lately. Several good fish fries with fat white perch. (they are also excellent covered with good olive oil, a shake of sea salt and grilled over oak coals).

Today Will and I took some friends whose dad is fishing impared. We were hot and heavy into the perch when Will starts getting pretty excited up in the bow. Now he doesn't get worked up over a pair of 12" perch at the same time any more, so I looked up to see what he was up to. Line was peeling off his reel at a fair rate. After a brief lesson in fighting a good fish, he puts this guy in the boat:

The smile says it all.

I'm headed back to that spot this week with a sinking line and bonefish flies.

The first species of fish to ever take drag on me in the 50's when I was
a kid.

Bloodworms were way cheap ... not $1.00 per worm like now. And packaged in the little Chinese food rice box with the wire handle.

And the fish were "vocal", too. I asked my father: "what do you think he's saying ?". Dad: "he's telling you to get that hook out of his mouth, son."

Cutter, I hope you find 'em again with your fly gear. :mrgreen:

I haven't gotten much flyrod time, but with this crew staying happy, I really haven't missed it. It is not about me right now.

Nice, Mark!

I was worried that my oldest had become too addicted to texting friends to put down the phone to go fishing. Fortunately, she still likes it enough to spend a few hours on the water. This is from our trip to Bald Head Island this month.

Excellent Todd.

Maybe we should have a new thread of "kids fishing"..... but then, we are all kids when we are fishing. :D

Mark and Todd - Neat pics - thanks for posting - great to see smiling kids catching fish

Great fish tales.
Noisemakers and flatties bringing big smiles.

We are all kids when we fish - nice to be reminded of age appropriate facial expressions!! :D
