First Bite

Every year, my family piles up at the camp house in Gulfport to trek to the Wolf River (boat landing near Long Beach) and enjoy a day of fishing and floating in the cool waters. This tradition, of course, includes snacks. My son’s favorite river snacks are Slim Jims, Pecan Swirls and watermelon. He takes the watermelon eating very seriously, as seen by the concentration on his face as he takes the first bite. On this particular day, the fish didn’t take any bites.
