Little Man Dan's One Hand Slam!

The little man broke his hand about a month ago and has been cut out of a lot of summer kids stuff.  We headed out early for a little boat cleaning and little man twisted my rubber arm into a full blown fishing trip.  Dan said even though he was on the IR he could play hurt, so we headed out to check the flounder hole.   The water is fairly shallow there, so Dan let out just enough line to hit the bottom vertically and "cane poled" the spinning outfit, being that one arm is in a cast.  I stood on the trolling motor and told Dan just to jig it every now and then.  After I caught a few flatties, I turned around and Dan's hooked up, slingin a small flattie in the boat like KVD!  This went on for the next 30 minutes, as he slung a whiting, trout and the dreaded lizard fish in the boat as well!  We ended up catching 10 flatties, although 6 were chips we kept 4 for the grease.  After a quick run on the beach we stopped by a likely oyster, and one pop of the cork got us a nice red to complete the slam.  Daniel-you are my hero!
