We sailed the Gulf of Mexico in a 90ft fishing vessel called 'The Great Getaway', 20 miles out we caught groupers, snappers, etc. we filleted the fish that we could for the night and stunk up the garage w a few. Also, on St. John's Lake behind Uncle Rex and Aunt Lil's house, me and grandpa both casted a silver minnow at the same time and instantly each caught a northern pike. I remember great moments like these as if they were yesterday and I naturally live on for him...
