Venice Fishing Trip

This summer Trey, Elijah, Morgan, Joseph and I were treated by Pawpaw to a Deep Sea Fishing Trip in Venice, LA. It was an amazing adventure and such a great family time together. Grammy kept Jordan, Mary and Hans back in Long Beach and had lots of fun Grammy time at the park and beach. Hanson had been running fever the weekend before at the lacrosse tournament and we ended up taking him into a walk-in clinic to get him some relief. I was nervous he would be miserable but he quickly started feeling better once he started on an antibiotic and Grammy had no problem at all with him.   The Venice crew went over the day before the fishing trip since it was quite a drive and we needed to be at the dock so early in the morning. We were all so excited to get on the boat and away we went!

On our way out we "caught" 2 giant bean bags which had fallen off the boat of a long family friend of ours- Jordan Ellis from Pass Christian!

I hooked a tuna and with the help of PawPaw reeled him in! It was a great challenge too bad it was our only tuna for the day!

None of the other boats caught much of anything either and it wasn’t for the lack of trying. We went to several spots, tried various ways but they just weren’t biting.  So goes it on the seas! Success isn’t always measured in the amount of fish you put in your cooler but by the memories of time well spent with the ones you love; however, a cooler full of fish sure does make a great fish fry! Better luck next time!!!
