It was a real treat to have Ryan and his son, Nick, on the boat again today. As we were leaving the basin Ryan explained how this was a bachelor weekend for them as the girls in the family (his wife and two daughters) had gone on a trip to visit family.
This was Nick’s first fish about 5 minutes into the trip. He was quick to tell his father that he was in the lead for the day. After asking Nick if he was going to take it easy on Dad, since it was Father’s Day weekend, I was informed that was not going to be the case. The competition was on!
This guy came to win. He was quick to update the stats too. Even during the slow times he would remind us of the tally.
At the end of the trip, according to our score keeper, Nick pulled out the victory 9 to 4. Ryan was still all smiles. I could tell that this would not be the last time that he would be happy “losing” a competition to his son!
Thank you to all of the Father’s out there! I hope you have a great time with family this weekend.
