Tim W. and Robert W.

Robert W. 1st Snook Tim and Robert are from Lakeland, Fl. Robert is 12 and Tims son. They have been fishing with me before and let me say that Robert has got the fishing bug. Last trip we caught some nice Reds. With the wind still blowing out of control we were gonna need a lot of luck. In the Morning Robert brought along a friend named Stephen. With plenty of bait left over from the night before we headed towards the Inlet. We arrived and the tide was slack. Stephen caught a big Jack. The Inlet was rough and fishing was slow. I suggested that we wait till the evening. Tim and Robert agreed.
We met back at the dock around 7 p.m. and went to catch more bait. The tide was incoming and the east side of the bridge was workable. It didn’t take long and Roberts reel was singing. Big Red! Well the bite was on. Robert was on fire he managed to whip down 5 big Reds, smallest 33 inches. Tim also caught 1 nice Red. Well with the tide slowing we moved in and started fishing for the Snook. I put a Plug on and gave the rod to Robert. With in a few moments Robert Hooked up with a monster! Robert did a great job at holding on and getting that 34 inch Snook to the boat. After some great pictures and a few more short Snook and a small grouper we decided to call it a night. Thanks Tim and Robert it is a pleasure to take the two of you fishing. I hope you enjoy the fish!
