Getting up and on the road to get the boat in the water to beat the sunrise. A couple great things about this, your usually the first to the bait shop to assure you get bait. Thats if your not getting your own  bait. Also you don’t have to fight for a spot at the boat ramp. Even better yet , you’re the first on the water to be the first to welcome the early rising fish, that are feeding to the break of light.

There’s just something about this experience that never gets old. It makes my heart skip a beat while taking in Therefore indulging the view of the sun coming up on the horizon, over the water. All the birds coming alive and taking off, flying over head rising from roost and the ocean coming alive, as the fish start to feed.

As if it was a part of nature  in its own habitat. Having that one on one battle between me and an amazing animal that I‘ve grown up loving and chasing my whole life.

The experience of that battle never changes, it’s just as amazing every time. To me this is what my heart beats for this is life. Some love to fish, Some live to fish and that’s what separates those who are passionate about this experience. We all have passion that lives in us, it’s finding yours and feeling it.
