The First Fish Of Your Life

Recently in the My Fishing Cape Cod forum, one of our members started this awesome thread about the first fish of your life.

Catching your first fish is an experience that many of us will remember for our entire lives, and many of our members began reminiscing and sharing photos of some of their earliest catches.

Very quickly the thread began to grow with stories from "catching giant bluefin tuna with dad" to fishing for sunfish at the pond with grandma and grandpa. In this post I would like to highlight some of my favorites!

November 7th Striper Blitz Caught On Drone
