Phil is a repeat client and today he brought his wife Sherry and their 6 year old fishing phenom Elliott.  Phil wanted Elliott to get his first bonefish and the same for Sherry so we went to work.  Conditions weren't great with it being windier than usual.  Actually, all summer long it has been windier than usual but the fish still have to eat.  Fishing only two spots is all we needed to do but it took some patience.  Spot one Phil landed a permit within the first 30-40 minutes and then it was crickets.  After investing some time in that spot something told me to move.  Arriving at the second spot it was slow at first but then it popped. Just like that bonefish started to swim through allowing Sherry to get her first bonefish, about a 10 pounder.  Then hooked on and handed the rod to Elliott who did a great job fighting and landing his first bonefish, also about 10 pounds.  Then Phil hooked up again and landed a 10 pounder and we ended the trip with Phil landing yet another one but this one was about 12lbs.  As the fish was in the landing net in the water it somehow swam out before we could get a really good picture of it but heck, we landed him and that's what counts.
