Which is sometimes called "responsible" or "merciful" hunthing these days.

What I absolutely can't fathom is "catch and release" which to me sounds like "wound and abuse the fish for no prupose, torture and torment him in the capture, and then go throw him back to do it all over again."
Especially when you catch the same fish twice!

Most fish get the hook in their 'lip??' and not a big deal. Catfish do sometimes, but are just as happy to swallow it whole. Those are the ones that are tough to get out.

Re: A life at sea...

You are actually living my dream. I have kids and would seriously consider this ... But being separated complicate things ... A LOT.

Enjoy it man ...really enjoy it. I envy you.

Great stuff, Brian. Thanks for sharing. We're just starting on our goal of cruising with our kids, and it's awesome to read about others already doing it.

Re: A life at sea...

I try to sell parents that the yacht clubs have sailing programs in the city but so far no one has done it. They don't understand what a great attitude builder sailing is.
You need friends to sail, so mean kids don't last at all. The closeness comes from team work and no one can demand it. Careful neglect or watching from afar makes a good parent a kid will come around.
The fatherless kids today are the ones who scoff at the law and any authority. Kids/ people need to know there are boundaries to life and nothing says it like a powerful ocean. The life of the city is more scary in my opinion. Once they know how to sail you can teach how to maintain the gear and the knowledge of what it costs will teach responsibility.
Good sailors learn to worry -bad one's scoff. The same is true of those learning about society. No person is an island. Who can say if environment makes the person but if it does - Sailing is one of the best teachers.
Short of the military, no other sport teaches what sailing can. You learn to measure up and , or who you can learn or lean on. Sailors are solid in that they will find a way, they have to.
A boat isn't a boat until you risk it to the water and the same can be said of children.
