The boys fished along the Oregon coast, where the temperatures were chilled by the significant wind. They caught several red-tailed surf perch, and we were able to feast on them one night. It was an experience for Jake, who had never 'killed' a fish before. He struggled with the concept, especially after seeing a gull pick apart one of his fish before it swam back to sea. I think he is much more comfortable with catch and release. The surf perch were all caught at the mouth of the Rogue River, where shrimp was the bait and dozens of osprey, seagulls, pelicans and sea lions feasted on the fish runs as well.
