Cermele: Baby Gear and Lonely Boats

By Joe Cermele

My good friend Greg has three babies. Baby number 1 is new daughter Hayden, who he and his wife Susanne (baby number 2) just brought home from the hospital a few weeks ago. As it should be, baby number 1 takes precedence over all things right now.

Because of this, baby number 3 is a bit lonely these days. This baby is Greg's brand-spanking new 32-foot Yellowfin center console, "The Filthy Animal."  While I have yet to meet baby Hayden in person, baby number 3 and I have been well-acquainted on the offshore grounds this summer. I'm sure she is sad as the other striper boats pass by this fall outbound to the inlet, but she must understand that Greg needs to get the newest crew member in peak fishing condition as soon as possible.

To help that along, I contributed the onezee worn by Hayden in these photos. Oh yeah, it's a custom job my friends, with a Mold Craft Wide Range trolling lure on the front and current crew status on the back.

This gift tells you three things about me. One, I can be totally corny sometimes. Two, no matter the occasion I will find a way to tie a gift to  fishing. And three, I know nothing about babies. I bought the "new born" size completely forgetting that babies actually grow...and apparently pretty fast...who knew? It will probably fit her for about a week, but I'm willing to bet Greg and Susanne will hang on to this one-of-a-kind.

I'm also willing to bet none of you can top this baby gift. Prove me wrong.

I've got a little Rossi with interchangable barrels .22 and .410 she can have after I kill a deer with the .410. Can't let Trae undergun me...

Joe,It has been hands down the best gift we have received for Hayden. It fits and I try and have her wear it as much as possible (except for requisite washings). I am thinking of ways to frame it like some people frame professional athlete jersys.To answer the question about the name, yes Joe, you are right.... It came originally from "Home Alone" and was a great ironic name to fit what a good looking boat Yellowfin makes. Secondarily or should I say coincidentally, I named it after my buddy Mark Fiz who was one of the best canyon fishermen I knew and lost a 2 year battle to leukemia last March prior to delivery of the boat. Nonetheless, the wide range onesie is still far in the lead as our best baby gift for Hayden.Your the best. Thanks,Greg

You're right about the growing fast part. My son is barely ten weeks old but his clothes are all for 6 to 9 month olds, and they are getting snug awful quick.As for the baby gift, a good friend of mine made a mobile for my son's crib out of a snoopy rod. Then we hung spinners and rat-l-traps on it. The look on the wife's face was priceless.

Tim,If I'm not mistaken, Greg took the boat name from his favorite "Home Alone" quote..."and keep the change ya filthy animal."
