Default Fishing at AL point W/ pics

My son and I went with a friend and his boy out to Alabama Point today to try the flounders. I caught a couple small grouper and a damn ray, but the highlight to our morning was the 36" bonnet shark. We found one nice school of ewlys at about 7am, right off the rocks (which were very slippery). When I threw the cast net I slipped off balance and kerplunked right between the rocks, gouging my palm and slicing my ankle.That was the only bait school we saw this morning. No more anywhere on the shoreline. We caught the shark and the ray off of a 6" fish that resembled a lady fish. Everything else was landed off suffocated ewlys (forgot the aerator). I ended up with two flounder ( a 17" and 14") and a slot red (19.5")to take home.:takephoto

Atta boy for taking your son with you. You are shaping him into the man he will become by giving your time to him. These are days that you can't get back once they are gone, so spend every minute with him that you can. He won't forget it and you are building memories for the both of you. I'm not saying that you shouldn't spend time with adult friends/buddies...just don't neglect your kids because of them. I lost my middle son in July of '06 in a car accident (he was 19 1/2). We spent many days outdoors together (all of us) on the water and in the woods. I praise the Lord for the times we had together building memories. This why I try to encourage as many people, especially us fathers, to spend as much time with our children as possible...there is no promise of tomorrow. Again, I applaud you for taking your son fishing and thanks for posting your report and your pictures.

I spend a LOt of time with my boys. I have sole custody and their moms live in Illinois, so they get quite a bit of Father Son time. I couldn't imagine anything different. I can't understand how some father's could just abandon their children and not be torn up about it. My oldest, 7yrs., comes fishing with me as often as possible, without missing school ofcourse. It is up to the father's of today to guide the outdoorsmen of tomorrow. Without us doing our duty to instill in our young ones the values and practices needed to preserve the sport, the dream of a retirement full of nothing but relaxing and fishing will never be a reality:letsdrink

No the pics in the post just show up as the dreaded red X. The links work though. Thanks for sharing by the way.
