Seventeen years--that's how long it has taken Ozzy to take his son fishing. The day has finally arrived and Ozzy is overcome with anticipation and takes on the duty of making sure all seamen have towels, sunscreen and hats. Ozzy, Jack's friend Tony T. and their Brit friend pile into the BMW. Jack is the last out of the door which is no surprise to Ozzy because he says that Jack is "just like his mother." Once they're all aboard they head to the docks where their boat, the New Del Mar, or the "Titanic" as Ozzy calls it, is waiting for them.
After meeting their crew, Ozzy, Jack and friends decide that it will be extremely entertaining to throw firecrackers off the back of the boat at the seagulls. However, the captain of the boat doesn't find this as entertaining and puts a stop to their fun. After all, they're there to fish, not harass birds. The group decides to bet fifty dollars on who can catch the largest fish. No male bonding would be complete without some sort of bet. After their quick fishing tutorial, they start attaching squid and live anchovies onto their hooks but being careful not to stick the hook through the anchovy's brains. Gross!
Everyone catches on rather quickly--everyone but Ozzy. He's still fishless! Every fish the others reel in looks identical to the previous fish. Ozzy swears that the same fish is "on contract to the boat." Only to add to Ozzy's frustration, Tony catches five fish at the same time. Ozzy feels a tug and everyone gathers around to encourage him. Could it be the big one Ozzy's been dreaming of? Nope, it's just a Pepsi and a Diet Pepsi can. Poor Ozz, either a Pepsi rep stuck those on his hook in hopes of getting him to star in a great promo spot or someone was playing a joke on Ozzy. He's a little upset but says that if anyone catches a "case of Corona" let him know. Finally, Ozzy gets a break when a real fish is actually on his hook. Yay, Ozzy! But as luck would have it, when he reels it in the scavenging pelicans steal the fish away.
All in all, it was a great day on the boat and Ozzy is extremely stoked that he finally got to go fishing with his son. They conclude their male bonding by relieving themselves by some trash cans on the way home.
