This was a special day for Andrew who was celebrating his 10th birthday with his dad James and little sister Alex. James, who works a really heavy work schedule, was looking forward to a great birthday for Andrew and some quality time with both children. Andrew
is an avid fisherman who had yet to catch a red. The day started very slow when finally a nice red bit…his little sister’s line. After working several oyster beds we only had some croakers, yt’s, and stinkrays…and a red his sister caught. With the tide still low we checked some more spots until we finally got a another red…on his dad’s line. Now the water was creeping in and we were struggling. We spotted some nervous water in between two gnarly oysters and decided to make a few casts. On Andrew’s third cast he connected with a good slot red. And then the god’s of birthday fish sent us reds for the next 90 minutes. It was kinda crazy with the kids netting each other’s fish and going under and over each other fighting reds. Don’t worry; Dad was yanking on his share too! It couldn’t have turned out better, and we even got to catch a few trout as well. To top it off, Andrew picked up a nice flattie
to complete his birthday slam. I have to apologize for the lack of photos, but the camera went dead, and I struggled with my old flip phone. All in all it was an awesome experience to see Pops and his two wonderful kids laughing and sharing high fives. It’s days like those that you (I) will remember forever! Thanks crew, you guys made it happen!
