Creek Fishing at IOP

Jack and Caroline and I took the 'Vader out into the creeks behind Isle of Palms marina today. I even let Caroline drive the boat a little bit:

These kids are starting to act like pros even in the span of just a week. At least they sure do like to think they know what they're doing. Actually I give Jack the credit for pointing out the potential honey hole on this trip.
