Time to get a Fishing Boat? Fishing with the Nguyen family!

So, today our journey starts at the marina, because we are getting on a boat! We're meeting up with a subscriber and him and his dad are taking us out on his boat thank you guys so much, I haven't met you yet, but I can tell I already like you But, today we're really going to see if– what it takes to maintain and have a boat and if it's actually worth it to have a boat

Uh, that's really the question I want to find out So this is your dad, who's everybody else? [Truoung:] Uh, this is my uncle, that's my cousin, Peter, and this is my sister [B] Uncle What can I call you? Call you Uncle? [T] Uncle, yeah [laughing] [B] and this is your sister? Yeah, Ying

Hi, what's your name? Ying Yae? okay and this is your brother? [T] Cousin [B] Cousin! [E] Peter! Peter Nice to meet everybody

[E] Thanks for having us [b] Thank you for taking us So how much work does it take tohave a boat? [T] Uh, you gotta clean it Every single trip, it's not too bad if you rinse it with the bucket, like we said [Dad] We clean it on the way back

[indistiguishable talking & music] Woah! Woah! Oh! A ha! [Dad] Man, I thought today was calm it's not calm at all [T] The weather was– I don't know why it's so bad today, it's like, borderline dangerous [E] Do you think it changed? [B] Borderline dangerous, huh? [T] Yeah, [speaking vietnamese] [T] Is that one all set? [B] How deep are we? [T] Uh 20 feet we're pretty shallow, but the spot where we were catching the black sea bass before, the good spot, was only 30 feet 30 – 40 feet This is actually where we caught scup before

Are you using this rod? [B] Do you guys like to eat the scup? [T] Scup is good we haven't found any since the black sea bass came in though [B] I'm going to sit next to you, okay? You got a bite? What's out there? Mackerel? [Sister] Unknown fish [B] Unknown fish There we go

Which one is this? Bass! [Dad] That's it! Oh, my god! Oh my god, man! [E] Yay! [Dad] Alright, that's it, I'm changing [B] Me too, you said it's nothing! You said it was going to catch nothing earlier! [22", right?] [T] 28 [28?] [E] 28 [ Is that 28?] [T] No [speaking vietnamese] [Dad] It's hard to tell

Look at today, look at right now, the weather say it's perfect It's not perfect [B] I didn't know we would have time to eat, hehe [Wow] [Dad] Yeah, I didn't expect to eat

Ohh magoodness Buns Are these bahn mi? Yeah, I wasn't expecting to eat, man not with you Not bad, man

Alright We're going to the light house, right? Yeah I think I think that's the plan Are you ready? I'm ready

Are you ready? I'm ready Is Peter ready? I'm not sure You guys ready? Yeah I'm ready if you're ready Peter is saying no

Peter is not ready No one cares No one cares? Everyone wants to fish [ooh!] I've got little hooks, I should be able to hook'em [Sister:] Ew, Peter

Chumming, he's helping us out [Sister:] Ew! [Erin] I'm sure he'd rather not [Sister:] It's all the way over here [You alright?] [Peter:] Yeah [Sister:] He's dying

That's going to attract some black sea bass [Peter:] Huge loss today [T] Huh? [Peter:] Huge loss today I didn't catch any fish but I lost all the food I'm not full anymore

[Erin:] Huge loss [B] Huge loss today [Peter:] Yeah, man, I'm hungry Oh man The sea robin are going to start messing around with the bait

First fish of the day Yeah Alright! That's it! It's big [Sister:] Get the net [Erin] Big enough

[Erin:] Get ready the net? [Fish on] [I don't think we need a net for this] [Dad} Don't worry about it This way [Alright] [B] What is it? That was a whole makerel on there, huh? [Dad] Half, half a mackerel [T] If it's a mackerel it could be a stripe or a blue [B] Stripe! stripe! [T] Oh man, dog fish

[B] Dog fish? Let me see! [Dad] Man! [B] Man [T] Bring it back up [T] You guys know they make fish and chips out of this in Britain? Dogfish? Yeah, really

[Really?] Oh, you got one! Who? Another dogfish? Yeah Mouth wide open Small pliers Do I loosen it? You do it Hold it by the tail, and throw it back in

You see how strong that is? Yeah! The boat's pretty clean He's been cleaning it He keep cleaning it as we go Okay So here's my conclusion about the boat, you've gotta be the right kind of person, someone who enjoys navigating the water, someone who enjoys taking care of your boat, someone who enjoys being out here, and um, it's work! It's not just plop the boat in the water, go, it's cleaning, it's maintaining, it's learning, it's researching what's wrong with the boat, if there is something wrong with the boat, it's learning what spots to go to it's learning about the safety, and it's all very important if you want to get a boat

Um, me, personally, I think that a boat I-I-it just doesn't make sense for me to get a boat right now, I've been really enjoying uh, shore fishing, and it's a completely different game when you're playing shore fishing vs boat fishing, 'cause there's a lot of different things you need to think about when you're on a boat, um, hopefully, you guys gained a little bit of insight, if anybody's interested in getting themselves a boat, this is a good overall experience to see if you're interested, uh, I want to thank this family so much for letting us join, it was such a great time to get to know everybody, um, see ya Thank you, every body, for letting us come on the boat, I had a great time

Arkansas company makes caskets that look like mini fishing boats

 Joel Schmidt sat bedside while his father rested in a hospital bed, recovering from a horrific fall off a ladder At the time, the Little Rock, Arkansas resident was unsure if his then-74-year-old father would make it  Schmidt was reminded of decades earlier, when his father would rush into his room in the early morning, prying him out of bed to have breakfast and get a move on to go fishing Schmidt said that to this day, the activity "never gets old"  They would rush out to their local lake by sunrise, fishing rods in hand, patiently waiting for their next catch  As Schmidt sat beside his ailing father, he joked about his father's burial to lighten the mood  "If you hadn't told me what you wanted, I might have just buried you in your fishing boat," he said  That's when the idea for Schmidt's creation came about — caskets that appear to be miniature fishing boats His company, Glory Boats, makes customized caskets for those who love the outdoors and reeling in some fish Their slogan, "Celebrating the lives of outdoorsmen," captures this very message  The boats, listed at $2,800, come in three different colors: Woodland camo, marsh grass and pink camo Schmidt explained that he wished he had the idea of the pink camo before his mother died several years ago She was an avid lover of the outdoors, just like him and his father, he said He described her as a tomboy who loved to fish and hunt, and thinks the pink camo model would have been a wonderful resting place for her  Now, Schmidt and his team go to various outdoor shows, promoting their sentimental product Many have approached him about other outdoor-based designs, such as deer stands and duck models  Schmidt, however, believes there is a generational issue with the caskets The oldest person to purchase a Glory Boat was 77, he said

Most of their sales come from people under age 60 Older generations, like that of his father, prefer to be buried in a more traditional, formal casket, he added  "Older generations are reluctant to break with tradition," he said  In fact, Schmidt's father was one of those very people, mentioning he preferred a traditional blue steel casket to be laid to rest in That decision won't have to come for some time, Schmidt said, as his father recovered from his fall and is still alive today  Glory Boats, which will celebrate its one-year birthday in August, is a local company through and through Joel is in partnership with his brother-in-law and son-in-law Their job is to weld the boats using metal from a local door company they partnered with Then, the welded frame is sent to another local company to finish the job  Summer months are the company's busiest by far, and when he isn't working on the boats, Schmidt is a professional photographer In fact, he has been in the photography business for nearly 25 years, doing a lot of work with local schools  Although the Glory Boats company is rather small right now, it is receiving inquiries from people across the United States, Schmidt said  "People like to fish and hunt in all kinds of places, not just the south "
