My 60 pound trophy.

Anyone who follows kayak fishing knows tha Virginia has phenomenal fisheries for our sport. A lot of kayak anglers are successfully catching huge Red Drum over on the Eastern Shore. Most are over 50 pounds and exceed 45 inches. For me its tough to find the time to get out and fish for "me". With two jobs and a caretaking gig....well the planets just don't align for me to chase paper.

Yesterday things changed. I connected with a 60# pound beauty in Rudee Inlet. She took me all around the area and even almost back into the ocean. I finally got her boatside and took this photo.

My daughter is my greatest trophy and no big fish will ever take her place.

I sometimes get jealous of all these big catches in my back yard. I feel that as a guide I should be out there increasing my public image and guide prowess. But really that's not what I do. My course gets off at times, but its my family and friends that gets me back to an even keel.

I am reminded that I am a guide and a teacher, my pride comes in knowing that over 8000 people own my book. Over 200 people caught their first fish on a kayak with me. Including my daughter.

My point is don't let your personal goals affect your relationship with family and friends...because without them...you have nothing.

    So you're in that condition of not figuring out what to accomplish subsequent (or very first), and your most comfortable motion would be to code. That's almost certainly not beneficial. In the event you do not know what to do subsequent, you should be creating, and with TDD we design, and ...
