For This NC Family, Fishing Is Passed From Father To Daughters

Fishing and farming usually spans generations, with the father passing down the tradition to his son.

Mack Liverman has passed on his shrimping business to the next generation -- his daughters Christine and Terri.

The Sneads Ferry family is awaiting the arrival of spring, which means they can climb aboard the Lady Ellen and set about a day of shrimping.

Mack Liverman says he used to take his girls out on the boats when they were just babies.

Though the three get up before the sun comes up and do not get home most of the time until after the sun sets seven days a week during the shrimp season, all three say there is nowhere else any of them would rather be.

    I think it is wonderful that his daughters love to do this with him.I use to go with my dad everywhere he went when I was little. I always love to go feed the pigs, cows and chickens.He owned a little country store for 31 years and I worked in it with him until he decided to sell it due to health reasons. I would have loved to kept it going , but he needed the money from the sale for him and my mom to live off of. You girls make your dad proud and good luck with your business.
