Not Just a Pastime 7/21/16

It has been over two years since Robert and I have fished together. Our first trip was stellar and I watched him catch upper slot redfish, black drum, and jack crevalle. It was more than obvious at the time that this young man loved to fish! That being said, the recent fishing had been a little slow and I was wondering how we would fair on this trip.

Robert was ready and put this fish in the boat less than 5 minutes into the trip!

From the start it appeared we were going to have another great day. After bending the rod with jack crevalle, we moved on to see about catching dinner for the family.

Robert’s first sea trout.

While we were scouting for redfish, Robert was casting a GrandSlam Baits 3″ paddletail on a 1/4 ounce jighead and hooked up this nice sea trout. I was surprised to find out that this was his first one, ever. As we were landing this fish, the redfish started feeding around us.

This is more than a pastime for Robert, it is an obsession. With his level of competency coupled with the fact that he has his own boat, fish beware – Robert is coming!
