2 Weeks Of Being 13

Carlo turned 13 about 2 weeks ago. It’s kind of weird to think about my baby being 13. Yes I am his step mother, but my husband and I have full custody and I have been in his life since he was 2. It’s a little scary to think about how much time has passed. Anyways he’s 13 and now he’s too cool for school.

Hubs had decided that he wanted to take Carlo on a charter boat for his big one-three. If you have read some of my other posts you have a small idea about how OBSESSED the hubs is about sturgeon. It’s his one goal in life to be able to catch one. He booked a tour with an experienced sturgeon fisherman.

They met in Rio Vista (about 40 minutes from home). Carlo was really excited to be fishing.


They got an early start, and were able to watch the sunrise.


After a few hours of looking at these guys.


One of Carlo’s poles had a bite. He was a fighter, and the Captain thought for sure it was a sturgeon.


Nope not a sturgeon. But definitely a keeper striper (striped bass). Doesn’t Carlo look so happy? Here’s another shot of him with the fish.


Do you see that? That face?


It’s like his “baby face” disappeared over night! Seriously, he just looks like a grown up in this picture.

Back to fishing…

After some celebrating



They were back at it. Hubs ended up catching another striper, making it 2 for the day. Carlo definitely made sure to tell him that his “striper was bigger than dad’s”.


The Captain filet’d the fish and we served it over pasta for dinner.


I would say the trip was a success! Hubs is already planning another trip later in the year to try his hand at catching a sturgeon.

On a completely separate note, I have been trying to fit in exercising anywhere I can.

Jessica and I went in a hike last week.


I also went for a walk with my Brass on Monday.



And even went for a short walk on my lunch yesterday.


My motto lately is fitting it in where ever I can. Now I just need the congestion in my chest to go away so I can start running again.

Have you ever been on a charter? Caught a sturgeon? Have secrets about catching a sturgeon?
