all up in the family
i took my brother out tonight to the secret spot. he’s been out there before but we didn’t catch anything late last season. this time i assured him we’d catch something, but little did i know that he would catch the only “something.” actually i should have known better since he’s been gifted with the younger brother essence of If There is Only One Fish To Be Caught It Will Be Caught By Him. i should have remembered the huge barracuda we have mounted on the wall that he caught when he was 8. anyhow, i promised him a fish and he came up with this great 32″ bluefish within 10 minutes of fishing the spot. i had a few hits here and there, and had a good fish on with the crappy Andrus Jetty Caster (on which I lost 5 fish last outing) but lost it. I ended up losing two valuable lures, while my brother held this one over me. I was feeling pretty good heading into the derby, but this has my confidence shaken!
