Default 5/12 Flatties

Took my 10 year old last night (Oh...incase any of his teachers see's this post...he was sick today...LOL). He's been before...but never killed one on his own that my gig wasn't in also. Last night nothing doing but for him to be Mr. Independent. I have told him that gigging was pretty much a waiting game and some times they'll come in early and some times they'll come in late. With that said...we put in around 8:30 or so and headed to the honey hole. We didn't see jack crap till around 12:30 or so, unless you count the sea turtles, eels, star fish and jelly fish. Anyway, the first flattie!...nothing doing...he gigged it...(in the ass). No big deal...we're gonna lose that when we skin it anyway. Well, as the night (morning) went on weFINALLY started getting into them heavy around 3:30ish. It seemed the more he gigged his aim got better and the more "smack" this young'n would talk.Itreally got thick when he spotted a sheep munching on some barnacles around a dock, stuck him in the head and said..."Gee Dad...Don't you wish you could do that?" All the while I'm thinking to myself..."I 'm going to hear this for a while". To make a long story short, we finally loaded up around 4:30ish 5ish with 19 flatties and a sheep. The best part of the story though....he missed number 20...LOL

Great lookin mess of fish!!! Those limits of fish are sometimes hard to come by even for those of us that consider ourselves seasoned anglers/giggers!!!:babyLOL Glad to see that your son got to gig some. Maybe he'll be hooked for life. It'll keep him out of any trouble:nonono later own down the road.

Unfortunately we didn't gig the first one till around 12:30:banghead...They came in late:doh. Plus the tide was LOW and the wind wouldn't quit:banghead. The water was pretty slick...just wind blown. We should be use to the wind by now...LOL:letsdrink
