It was trip that almost didn't happen, being that Mark had injured his shoulder the night before and was certain that he'd have to forgo adventure in favor of sitting for the rest of the summer. Luckily, April's sister, Amy, a cracker-jack Ortho-expert PA, had held an early morning call with him to assess the situation, evaluate the injury, and inform him that he was going to be just fine. The news came as a huge relief to April, who otherwise may have had to drive us home. She is not the best driver, or stayer-awaker.
Our despair was instantly broken by the cry of "I've got one!" from Super Cool Captain's daughter, Super Quiet Sleepy Daughter. Andrew rushed over with the net as Max cried "Lunch!" and insisted that we fry up the fish immediately. Super Quiet Sleepy Daughter went back to her jigging. Super Cool Captain scratched his head... wondering how it was that this jigging nonsense had actually produced a fish.
