Need more ammo!
Spencer had his first real fishing trip this week. Dad took him out to the coast with real poles (not his little Scooby Doo fishing pole) and live bait and the next few hours is a story that will go down in Spencer's Hall of Fame memory book.
Dad said that it was either extremely hot beginner's luck-- or some sort of fate-- but the kid had the fishing trip of a life time.
Dad caught two small,"throw 'em back" fish. Spencer caught 22. Yes--TWENTY TWO!!
One time Dad was helping him bring the fish out of the water and Spencer had TWO fish at one time. Seriously-- he was catching them two at a time at one point! Dad said Spencer got so excited that he yelled, "Quick Boppa! I need more ammo!" Dad laughed and explained that it is "bait" and not ammo-- but with the way Spencer was fishing, they agreed ammo sounded dead-on accurate.
Spencer caught 11 sharks. Boppa let him keep one of the baby ones--which they put in a jar of alcohol for Spencer to preserve in the name of science. And by "in the name of science" I mean take to school and gross out the little girls....
