Marcus and Riley

Marcus hooked up Marcus and his son Riley are from South Carolina. We met up at the inlet at 8 a.m. We started the morning off fishing with jerk baits and jigs on the flats. We got into the Ladyfish. Riley was having a blast with the ladyfish. Riley is 8 years old and is a pretty good fisherman. We fished a few different spots before heading out into the ocean. We got our Croakers at the same old spot. We also sabikied up some greenies. The bait pods were close to the beach. We slow trolled some livies for a bit. One Bluefish and that was it.

It was time to go and fish the jetty for the Snook. When we got there  around 12 p.m. the tide was outgoing. There was a few boats anchored up. We took a spot closest to the current. We both missed our first hits. It seemed like everyone else was hooking up but us. Well that would change, When Marcus hooked up with his next Snook he landed it and it was a perfect 31″ keeper. The bite moved over to the rip line. We moved anchor and started just hooking up left and right. Marcus definately had his share of Snook. He must of caught 6 or 7 big Snook, smallest was 30″ and biggest 36″.

Riley was the best though when I asked him to hold the rod with the reel in baitrunner mode the Snook took off screaming, I reached over and flipped it in gear and it almost pulled him into the water. It was all he could do to hold on. I grabbed him by the waist to hold him in the boat. Riley landed that fish by himself though. It was quite the site to see a young kid catching a monster Snook. The smile on his face was priceless! That was the biggest snook as well. Great job Riley! Thanks again Marcus and Riley for fishing on the Attitude Adjustment. I hope to fish with the both of you again, It was a lot of fun.
