Inspired by the Fishing With Kids post by Zhao , I rented a skiff out of Glorietta for my two little one's first-ish real fishing experience.... not counting last summer when we skunked at a NorCal reservoir, or the handful of bluegills we got at neighboring ponds. Told my kids that we were going to go over a bridge, and then under it, which was met with confusion and excitement. We got on the water at 10:30 and took my time getting adjusted to the skiff, not wanting to end up on the Qualified Captain. Made our way to the bridge around 11:00, stayed north of it near the moored boats, and tried to drift southward with the wind, fishing Werf-rigs. The wind kept pushing us south east and boat traffic was a bit frenetic, so we reset near pylon 5 because 5 "is the best number." At 11:45 my son got nice tug on his Spiderman rod and we picked up a first! A diamond turbot. My first time catching one, and my son's first salt-water fish. I've heard about how good they taste, and this was one guy hooked, so I bled it and threw it in the cooler. We anchored between 5 and 7 to stay in the shade and out of boat traffic. About 45 min later, another tug on the Spiderman rod and this time I handed it off to my daughter. Another tubot! Also gut hooked, also dinner. Both times each kid got to reel one in, and the other got to net it. We also fouled a stingray. The plan was to drift back into Glorietta, but the wind was pushing us east and started to pick up around 1, so we called it a day. Got Slurpees on the way home (a new treat, 1/6th the price of boba or Yogurtland, same amount of sugar!), and made it in time for the Air Show. We cooked up the turbot with the leftover shrimp in garlic and butter. Turbot was good, nice flavor but we were a bit... aggressive when cooking it.
