 Regular client Chris brought his grandson Keith along today and although Keith fishes back home for river trout, he hasn't fished in salt water before.  After a few pointers with the spinning rod and some practice casts it was all over.  He started off by catching mutton snapper on the flats and his first bonefish, dang!  Changing it up I located schools of bait and blacked out the live well with live pilchards.  We fished a few wrecks, finger channels and seawalls and the total tally for Keith was:



Mutton snapper

Mangrove snapper

Bull sharks

Barracudas and

Yellow jacks 

Wow!  He's now ready to take up a new sport, this one is done with!
