What a fun crew Joe and I had the pleasure of taking out this morning. Steve had just recently bought his dream vacation home in Truro. His sister Sally and her husband Dave came for the long Labor Day weekend. And Steve’s daughter Anna was practicing her early morning school wake up drill. The four of them set out for a combination fishing and lobster charter. Sally started things off as we were leaving the harbor by exclaiming that her husband Dave has never caught a fish on a fishing charter! We all had a good laugh until we trolled for nearly an hour with nary a bite. His jinx was wearing on us. Finally, Steve broke the ice with a nice Bluefish on a spinning rod. He took his time and expertly landed his fish after a great battle. Soon after, Sally caught three Stripers on an umbrella rig. But the person of the hour was Dave, who broke the spell and caught a keeper Striper off Race Point. We rounded out the trip by hauling some lobster traps, with 6 or 7 take home lobsters. A great group to spend time with. See you again next year.
