Tom and Aaron
Tom is a friend of a friend and is in town from San Diego, California. Aaron is his 10 yr. old son. We met up at the Inlet in the morning. We went and caught some pigs and pins. Seems like the pigs were not as thick. It was a little tougher than the norm lately. The tide was switching to outgoing around 8:30 a.m. The weather was perfect. When we arrived at the inlet, the tide was all ready moving out. Once I got the anchor set Tom got a bait out and with in a few minutes hooked up. That one would get away. It took a little while for him to get another chance. But when he did, he did a great job at setting the hook and whooping that fish. It was a nice fat Snook that was just a bit over sized.
Aaron hooked up next. It was classic, to see this 10 yr. old try and hold on to the pole while this Snook pulled. Tom had to help him at first. Aaron almost got pulled in the water landing his first Snook. It was 32 inches on the dot. That would be the only keeper of the day. After his first two fish, Aaron began pulling them in all on his own. That was pretty cool. Tom caught a few more big Snook and a monster Redfish. Overall, it seemed like the Snook wanted croakers more than the pigs or pins. we did put some nice Snook on the boat. Tom it was a pleasure to take you and Aaron fishing and meet the both of you, thanks again for the support. I’ll talk to you next time.
