For Don, it’s been well over 10 years since both of his daughters have visited the family Cape house in Wellfleet together. That house has been in the family since ’74, a two acre parcel that overlooks Wellfleet Harbor. While underway outside the Pamet Harbor, Don regaled us with surf casting stories of a bygone era. The large Stripers were in the surf, off the great backside beaches, and they were easy to catch. His daughters, Erin and Megan, were kids back then. Too young to really appreciate the life of a Cape surfcaster, as their father was. As we settled into our trolling routine, the rod almost doubled over. Erin fought gallantly a trophy Striper, that ended up to be the pool winner. Later, she and Megan doubled up on large Striped Bass. It was one of those epic days of fishing. A day that certainly made their father proud. A rare fishing trip for a father and his daughters, making family fishing memories that will be retold for a long time.
