Lukes First Fish

Report Date: August 7, 2019

Luke and his Daddy, and Glenn and Sean fished with me this morning. Glenn and I have been good friends for years, and I have watched Sean Michael grow up. Back to 8 yr old Luke. This was his first fishing trip, and did he ever do well. He took top honors, and caught a number of them without any help from the peanut gallery. His first fish was a very pretty slot Redfish which he handled completely alone. Also had his wish come true, a shark of course. Hooked up a big Bonnethead, and we put it next to the boat, with a little help of course. He was elated. He caught 8 trout, all 4 redfish, and the Bonnethead shark. Ended up the morning with 13 Trout, 4 Redfish, a very pretty flounder, and a couple of sharks. Sean hooked the fish of the trip, a very big trout on a topwater bait up against the shells. I saw her take it and she was the biggest I've seen all year. He did great fighting her, but somehow she managed to pull the hooks. Oh well. The big one gets away again.
