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.
