Nate's First Saltwater Adventure
My family and I took a trip down to Florida and celebrated my son Nathan’s 13th Birthday. We went to Orlando and enjoyed Universal Studios, but my favorite part of the vacation was taking Nate on his first saltwater fishing trip. We spent the day fishing for redfish and speckled sea trout on Mosquito Lagoon. We both got really lucky and came home with a lot of delicious fish to eat. Nate ended up catching the biggest trout of the day and I’ll never forget the big smile on his face! While he wrestled to get his fish in I caught my first two. Seeing his excitement as he caught his first fish was a father’s dream come true. It was such a great memory to experience together and pass down my love of fishing to my son. The whole day was filled with big smiles. Teaching all three of my sons how to fish, hunt, and love the outdoors has meant more to me than I can say. I will cherish those memories for years to come!
