MULTI GENERATION AL FISHING
There is one item I may have failed to mention when we last spoke about winning the Big Rock this year. Rob Warren’s dad, Bob, is the man who started the Honey
Hush adventure for Rob and myself a long time ago. Bob introduced his young son Rob to offshore fishing back in the mid-1970s; I joined the Honey Hush team in summer 1980. Medical issues sidelined Bob for the past several years, and we really missed him being on the boat for this year’s Big Rock victory.
After securing the Big Rock win late on Saturday, June 17, we were able to speak with Bob by phone and share our elation with him. Rob posted a very fitting and moving tribute to his father on the Honey Hush Facebook page. It speaks volumes about the father-son relationship that this world seems to be missing out on in today’s times.
I have been fortunate to observe that relationship between Bob and Rob for the past 38 years, and I’m also getting to see a little of it with my oldest son, who has been able to fish with us the past couple of years after he graduated from college. He got to wire our winning blue in the Big Rock because of Rob’s ankle replacement.
Fishing on Qualifier with Fin Gaddy and his twin 10-year-olds has also been very rewarding. We have been able to watch those two little guys grow up to become excellent anglers, with their dad, Fin, providing them with awesome instruction and opportunities. One of the twins, Charles, was top junior angler and top male angler in the Hatteras Marlin Club Tournament with three blues and a sail. Let’s keep the next generations fishing.
Thanks for what you folks do at Marlin.
