Mostly lurked- Now I have a big boat!

Recommended Posts

Names Tom. I fish with my 8 year old boy, Tommy, all the time. He’s been fishing with me since he’s been able to walk. He even has a Facebook fan page called “Fishing with Tommy.” My wife is fine with fishing as long as I take my boy so we go a lot. I’ve kind of created a monster! Grew up outside of Philly, but moved just outside of Rochester 2 years ago. Mostly lurked here for a while, fishing the piers and tribs, all while falling in love with this awesome fishery. This July, I finally broke down and bought myself a bad ass salmon trolling boat! 1994 Crestliner Sabre 205, all welded aluminum cuddly cabby with only 275 hours on the original motor. Boat name is the “Bootstraps” out of Mayer’s Marina in I-Bay. Trying to master this monster of a lake is no easy task and I’m going to need some pointers now and then. If you see us out there stop by and say hello. The boy loves to talk fishing!

Welcome ! Awesome to have your kid as your fishing buddy, trust me I know the feeling !!! That rig of yours is sweet too, nice purchase, you won't regret it. As you drive by the piers or tribs loaded butt to elbow with fisherman you will know it's all worth it! Tight lines

Fishing with your kids builds a special bond between you and your children. That the best therapy there is for parent/children!! My daughters are still talking about our trip this summer. So nice to see a young man interested in the outdoors!! Enjoy every moment as they grow up fast. Thanks for sharing and get out as often as possible, like mentioned above!! Good job Dad!!
