One family took advantage of the nice weather and time off to fish at the pier Thursday afternoon.

While it's not your traditional Thanksgiving, it gave them time to spend together and make new traditions.

Harris Vella said, "it's been fun fishing, I mean, I've already caught something big."

While Harris' father Sam Vella said, "normally we have Thanksgiving early just because we have two different families to go back and forth and it just makes it easy, just this year we decided to take advantage of vacation from work and come down and do something different."
