 I had Frank and his 11 year old son John on board today and John was turning 11 today, and this was his first fishing trip, and this was part of his birthday present, and Frank told me John was SUPER excited.  So awesome! 

John hadn't really cast much before but got the hang of it over the course of the trip.  But, to start him off we used bait to get him warmed up and he quickly released a few catfish, which is always a 2 point deduction but served it's purpose today.  The fishing was definitely tough today with the tide being the opposite of the tide predictions and super high water.  Well, that didn't stop us from working hard and when the dust settled John caught his first snook and caught it on a lure he cast and worked himself, released four sharks, caught trout and lost a nice redfish.  Not bad for the conditions and a newbie that will soon be a master. By the way, his dad text me that night saying John wanted to go again.  Mission accomplished!
