Today I took Mike, his son Travis, brother Chip, and Gene, his dad, on a fishing charter, three generations of Drivers.

I had fished with Mike before and knew that his entire family were avid hunters and anglers. I wanted to find them some fish! It worked out pretty well.

The winds turned around a little, the current was flowing and the bite was on. After we caught a bunch of specks, we fished some baits and got into some Black drum and Sheepshead. We caught stuff right up to the time that we got off the water. These guys fished hard! They would stop for a second, drink water or eat a quick snack and run back to their rod. Gene, I can only hope to be as spry as you are when I am 79.

It was a really nice morning of fishing with a bunch of really nice guys.
