Wishin I was on the Sauk
Yesterday I had the joy of taking a family if 4, including a young man age 11 and a young woman age 9 out on the ocean. Helping and watching those kids catch lingcod and rockfish was just a treat.
Today, among my crew, was a gentleman around my age who has stage 4 cancer. A FB fishing group donated to buy him a trip as he'd never fished the saltwater and it was a bucket list item. Such a great guy and he enjoyed catching fish every bit as much of those kids, including the biggest lingcod of the day.
Really fun weekend, and between both experiences a great reminder of why fishing is so awesome. We need more innocent kid laughter as they catch fish with their family and the pure joy of someone living in the moment in this crazy world we are living in. My job definitely didn't feel like a job the last two days.
Makes all the bad trips, hard hours, unruly clients a thing of the past.
Keep it up Nick, you're the Rockstar out there!
