Eric has fished with me plenty of times before and on his first trip last year he wanted to try bonefishing.  So, he proceeds to land a 12 pounder and his father in law a 10 pounder, dang!  Well today he brought his friend Cosmo who doesn't fish so I kept it simple with snappers and blue runners and they had a blast.  I then took them to shark fish on the edge of a flat and after a while Cosmo hooks up to a nice lemon shark and the shark proceeds to break him off deep into the long blistering run.  As I set up again I look back and there's a school of mudding bonefish a decent cast off our stern!!!!  I rigged a shrimp but when I cast they were moving away.  Hmm, there should be another school.  Yes, there was indeed another school and this time Eric scored!  The initial run had the water rooster tailing off the line and I could tell this was a big fish.  Well, several solid runs later Eric had a slob bonefish at the side of the boat.  Dang, Eric just catches stub bonefish!
