couples that fish together

 after seeing a couple of posts that couples get out and fish together im curious as to how many get out there as a couple and kids as a family outing. 

over the last 18 years as boat owners i can count on one hand the times the boat has hit the water without both of us on it

Refularly get out with my family but it's more for a play on the beach. With a 4.5 and 1.5yo, fishing is a push.

 We get up onto the beaches

Sun, 2018-07-01 07:56

 We get up onto the beaches north of Perth regularly with our 4 and 6 yo. The kids love catching herring and my vego missus has started to fish as well because she knows the fish don't go to waste. We caught some nice big hezzas yesterday as well as a couple of huge storm gardies.

 it certainly makes a cheaper day out than going to the movies and having lunch or dinner . 

used to cost us as a family about $150 for the day with 2 kids in tow .fuel bait ice food and drink. cheaper than other options and they are away from the computer games as well

My Mrs is my regular deckie, the only time anyone else gets a gig is when she has to work weekends.

Last trip out we came in with our 4 demersals, 2 dhuies, 1 big blackarse and a good red snapper.

She caught the lot................

Mon, 2018-07-02 10:24

 My new partner and kids go out regularly, I went from a family of 4 and now a family of 6. My partner & I have two kids each simulator ages, we recently did a day trip with the kids from mandurah to penguin island. We left at 9am and back at the ramp by 5pm, stopping half way for a feed of whiting for dinner. I will say it's nice having a partner that's just as keen on fishing as I am, finding some squid is our next trip out.

I take the Mrs and kids 8,5&3

Wed, 2018-07-04 15:25

I take the Mrs and kids 8,5&3 out a bit and it’s usually more focused around kayaking and swimming than fishing but we still give the bread and butter species a crack. I did take just the Mrs out for a dhuey crack but she let the team down dropping 3 good fish with only myself bagging a dhu. I did float the idea of joining the ‘3 Mile Club’ on the way back in to no avail….

 Keep it clean there frosty.

 Keep it clean there frosty. Risking a bit at 3 mile with other boats around . Better 20  mile out lot less boats to be disturbed 

Pity about dropped fish. Its always good to see kids having fun on the water no matter what age . Even us big kids.

 I’ve managed to get a couple of ‘tags’ in on quite billfish days. Sometimes the wife has come and it wasn’t a solo run too.
