My clients today have been lifelong best friends. It was quite apparent by all of the good natured ribbing! By the end of the trip, Mike had caught his largest redfish to date.
Of course David had to do something to one up his buddy. His first effort fell a little short, still a nice fish however.
The next fish made him high hook for the day. What a beast!
On March 31st, I took Nick sr, Madelyn, Nick jr, and Ethan out for a morning charter. Ethan (8 years old) caught the fish of the trip, a 32.5 inch 15 lb. redfish! This was his first redfish! There were plenty of fish caught by all. Nick jr is taking partial credit for the fish since it was his ladyfish that we cut up for bait.
That afternoon, I had the pleasure of assisting another youngster with her first redfish ever, also.
Jacqueline (10 years old) was so excited to get this one in the boat. We were fishing around a lot of oysters and the previous 3 fish cut the line. Her first redfish came in at 27 inches and a little over 7 pounds.
I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to help families make these lifelong memories! Hopefully these kids will be sending me pictures of their new personal record fish.
