So I took a day off as our company generously gives a day off for Birthdays.
Stayed close as I took my 8 year old out. Didn't see any jumpers. I will say I have some confidence trolling bare red hooks behind a dodger. Unfortunately it's because I managed to pull up four small cod. So I guess it does look like food.
My son did ok. At the closest seat pegs and at number one he could get maybe two thirds of a stroke in. He did great. Next time I'm taking the amas off. It interferes too much when coming along the side to help with fishing.
A few pics. He is wearing a pfd under the wind breaker.
