Alec is not as quite as his dad, Jim. But out of the two boys; Nick and Alec, he is definitely quieter. And for more than 4 hours Alec smiled patiently waiting his turn to catch a keeper Striped Bass. Today was “one of those days” where the fish were there, but finicky and not biting. Jim and Scott were repeat customers from last year. At that time, after fishing, we got some lobsters the hard way, having our lobster gear foul our engine in the process. So today we tried a little bit harder to make the fish Gods cooperate. All the while, Alec smiled and quietly waited his turn to catch a keeper. Nick caught a 31″ and then a 37.” In between Alec caught a couple of School Stripers that had to grow a bit. We switched spots to Herring Cove and Race Point Light, hoping that would change Alec’s luck. And finally we switched seats with Nick. So of course the seat Alec had been sitting in caught the third keeeper of the day! What impressed me most was the way Alec handled his bad luck…with a smile and aplomb. The mark of a gentleman. You’ll get them next year Alec!
