Dad/sons day out on the boat today with Steven and his two boys Jack and Travis.  They wanted to bonefish and catch sharks so we started off our full day bonefishing.  The conditions were great but the full moon meant a decent number of fish were offshore spawning but there were some still around.  We missed tow bites early on  and then made a move.  At the 4th spot we finally hooked up and Jack got his first bonefish.  By this time it was about 9 am and there were boats everywhere including running right behind our boat and spooking everything around so we gave up on bonefishing and went to catch shark bait.  Here the boys had a great time pulling on small snappers and grunts.  We kept the grunts and hit the flats, my favorite flat on the incoming tide and it proved dead.  OK, we fished my second favorite flat on the incoming and that did it.  Here we saw a massive hammer head shark in about 2 1/1' of water right by the boat, it was awesome!  Oh, and we hooked several sharks and landed one before we called it a day.
