We had a wonderful opportunity through work to go to a conference in San Diego, California.  The conference was wonderful!  We learned many new warm ups, dances and games to keep our kids moving while incorporating skill and academics into the class period.  During our free time we ate lots of sea food and learned our way around the Gaslamp district of San Diego.  On our last day we took some time to go on a trip in hopes of catching a few of the local saltwater fishes.

We boarded the Mission Belle for a six hour trip.  There were 38 other anglers on board with us this day, with several families.  The boat was set up for jigging around all sides.  We headed out from the bay several miles toward Mexico to find a spot with some structure to fish.  Captain Tony worked the boat into our first spot and we dropped lines in hopes of large rock fish.  It is funny the difference between expectations and reality…  We figured it would be nothing to catch a 8+ pound fish on this trip, however, the truth can be seen on this video.  We will definitely get back to this area again!!

Oh, and did we mention we got to see Drew Brees up close and personal?
