Default Late post but one worth posting!

First time fishing post long time lurker. Weather looked great last thursday, so plans were made. Took my 9 y/o, 7 y/o, and a friend offshore with the intention of catching enough fish for a church fish fry! We left Weeks Bay around 6:30 am. Caught a livewell full of pogies in about 20 minutes and made the long run across mobile bay. Arrived at our 1st spot (and only spot) about an hour later. It was pretty much non-stop action from when we arrived until we left. Got our limit of nice snapper pretty easy. Only managed to lose one fish to the sharks. It was fun to watch the young-uns fight the big fish. I would hook-em and put the rod in the rod holder and let the kids reel them in. We lost so many fish due to mystery break-off's (I figure kings). Then we set the anchor so we could eat lunch. While we were anchored my 9 y/o proceeds to grab the rod with the got-cha plug on it and he starts catching king fish after king fish. Must have caught 8 or 9. This boy was a fish magnet. Heck he was even catching snapper on top with the Got-cha. You couldn't ask for a better day and to spend it with my kids made it priceless. I was kind of hesitant abouth going offshore with the kids but they were great. Real troopers. They didn't whine or complain or fight once. Thank to all you guys and gals for all the advice you share on here. Unfortunately this is probably going to be a first and last post. My 3 y/o has to have a couple of surgeries this year so I am having to sell the boat. I will just get a bigger one next time! Till then.
Tight lines!
ps. i know a post without pics is worthless, so enjoy!
