No family members were drowned!

Not even the ones that shoulda been?

Got to try out my new chest waders yesterday on the beach, surf perch fishing.

They worked GREAT! The cheap wading shoes I bought are just the right size, and worked good also.

It was 74 degrees on the beach yesterday, so I was a little warm in my chest waders, but had on shorts under them so my legs were cool.

Never caught any "keepers" but caught several small fish, and through them back. It was a fun trip anyway.
