8/15 3 Generations of Singer Family Fishing
<p>Today we had 3 Generations of the Singer Family on board for a 1/2 day of Fishing. Grandpa Stu, Dad Shawn and Grandson Harry. Conditions were good, but we were keeping an eye on the weather. Set out at Noon and was not long before we got to the grounds.
Was not long before the rods started bending, Fluke, Sea Robbins, Cocktail Blues, Porgies, Sea Bass. Boys were having a blast, several double headers. Truly great to see a family enjoying the outdoors.
The weather all was to the north of us, but alas that changed quickly. Heavy conditions were building to our south ad headed north. Had to call an early end to the trip, stow the gear and put the coals to her. Weather hit us just outside the River. Wind, Rain, Hail, Lightning. The only good thing was it was coming from where we wanted to go, so we slowly headed into it making our way to dock. Was raining so hard the cockpit scuppers could not keep up, had 3-4" of water at one point.
Only took a few minutes to moror up the river to safe dockage. Boys kept shelter in the cabin til it subsided. Cleaned the fish and said out good byes. Great family, good trip with an exciting ending
