Boy's First Bag Out

Took my two boys out in the morn and anchored up in the 15kn easterlys and caught a stack of big herring after our berley trail brought in about 4,000 of em.

Once the wind died down we headed out to the 30s but the bite was off and the wind was pushing us on different drifts directions for an undersize blackarse.

Tried dropping the pick and ended up way off my intended spot so back to drifting and bang my oldest had a fight on his hands and got these two up without needing help. Couldn't wipe the smile off his face all day!

He's been learning how to fillet with mixed resuts and joined me with his xmas pressie, a Swibo filleting knife (thanks Mick C for the suggestion) and did an awesome job of filleting, skinning and deboning the herring.
