Thx guys!!! We are just as excited as we were yesterday when we arrived. Tonight we have been reminiscing about living on USAF bases and how my dad prepped Big John for his tour of Vietnam.......and just life in general. Oh, I learned I broke his hand trying to tackle him when I was a kid playing football!!! Dinner was waaaay too much food but we never faltered......Chef Bernie is a character......lol!!! I hit Big John with another shirt tonight and matching neck gaiter. He tried to tear up again but we decided to roast him before he got all sentimental......lol!!! We all believe the morning will be great, and that all that matters right now......stay tuned!!!

The boat reminds me of my last car purchase. My dad asked how many miles to the gallon? And I answered if you can afford the car you do not care about it's mpg........

Wow....pure epicness in the Sportsmans Paradise!!! Yall, we absolutely slaughtered them. Over 100 fish put in the boat today, with 88 kept over 2 days. The 1st cast started with a trout and the last cast ended with a trout!!!
Personal records by all 4 fisherman were shattered. Zero complaints, zero concerns and tentatively slated for a June or July when Big John's grandson Reese can tag along with us.
Biggest fish was a redfish landed by Big John......42.25" & 25.25 pounds.....which beat his biggest from 30 years ago!!! I got the 2nd biggest redfish at 42" & 26.8 pounds.....which slaughtered my biggest by 10 pounds plus. My brother's redfush was 3rd at 38.5" & 20 pounds exact......his 1st ever redfish.....lol!!! Austin's 1st ever redfish, speck, sheepshead and hard head catfish.. His redfish was probably 15 pounds and it nearly took him overboard.....I grabbed him by the belt loop just in case.......
Did I mention 2 blacktip sharks were landed by me and Big John? It was by far one of the most satisfying trips on multiple levels for me. The entire time brought back our childhood adventures in the saltwater......plus my nephew is hooked for life!!! I will add more pics as I sift thru them.Name:  20210420_072501.jpg

Congratulations on a great trip with family and friends.

Those sharks are actually bull sharks. Blacktips have a pointy nose and little or no black on the tail.

Thx everyone!!! Yesterday mom and sis fried trout in the backyard as we trimmed bushes, removed some dead branches, cut grass and did general work around here......lol! The whole time the planning for the next trip was being discussed. Big John called twice as he is still bouncing off the walls and wants to pay for the next fishing adventure at Paradise Plus.
Oh, sadly I might not be using Captain Anthony again because he don't know his daggum shark species.......NOT......lol!!!

I like reading/hearing of stories such as these Oscar. Family fun activities that show us life isn’t so bad and focuses on the positives in life. Even down to the frying fish and yard work. Thanks for taking us along.
