Kristen and I decided that we’d give each of the big kids an experience as part of their Christmas. So Megan is going whale watching with mom and I took Paul fishing out on the open ocean.
After a lot of research online I booked our day on the Daily Double out of Point Loma Sportfishing. (Yelp review) It was pretty reasonably priced and the reviews were good, especially for those with kids.
We weren’t disappointed! We both had a great time, made a lot of memories, caught some fish, and had plenty of stories to tell.

These are the fish bags… each hoping to be filled with fish.
A beautiful sight with San Diego beginning to fade into the distance
My boy, looking very serious before we left the docks
Boats in the harbor
A sunny day having a blast with Paul
A gorgeous tall ship sailing out of the harbor when we were coming in
Looking off the bow into the harbor
That’s Cabrio, the famous lighthouse on top. Now it’s a national landmark
Filleting our catch!
The seagulls & pelicans chasing the boat, hoping for some scraps
Not as interested in this one… “Dad, stop taking pictures!”
Hawaii in the distance…
Our fish getting sliced-n-diced
I’m sure there was something important here. Just enjoy…
There were whales over there.
We took a lot of these pictures. I love hanging with my boy!
