When the long hot days give way to the cold dark short days it means an end to many of the family activities outdoors.
Unfortunately the dark months can lead people to seek entertainment on electronic devices to fill the gap in excitement. On the other side of the of the spectrum are families who make the most out of a weekend to go fish, hunt, or crab. October gets pretty special in the NW with families catching salmon, hunting deer, crabbing, or just getting away to a spot you need a boat to get to.
One of our customers sent us his weekend with the family pics and we’d thought we’d share their experience.
A long weekend, a boat, and a little luck paid off for Steve and his family while on the Oregon Coast. Early morning temperature was right at that sweet spot where it’s too warm for ice but cold enough to where you don’t want to leave the tent or the cabin of your own volition. Only the sheer force of will to eat delicious crab and a fun day riding around in the Zodiac will muster the strength needed to get dressed.
The chore of baiting and setting pots is balanced by zipping effortlessly along in a Bombard Commando C4. When the situation allows forty ponies gallop along making the C4 earn another little bit of it’s legend. Steve has Seadek installed on the Bombard’s floorboards ensuring surefootedness even when covered with the Ocean’s bounty. Good thinking Steve!
While the crab traps are soaking clear weather allows for Zodiac rides for everyone including some random boaters who just wanted to try it out themselves. New friends are always made on these fall family outings.
Before they know it the intrepid family has to pull traps and sort the catch or no one gets their crab dinner. Around the fire is where legends and memories start. Friends and family laughing and telling the tales of the whopper that got away or that cool G-turn on the swell. Making these kind of memories is really what it’s all about.
We thank Steve for the pics and for bringing back memories of past adventures. If you want to make your own memories like Steve give IBC a call.
