Five-year-old Henry and his dad Ben did some fishing.

Five-year-old Henry and his dad Ben had a little fishing contest on board the Lets Get Em Charters boat. Visiting from central Illinois they booked their charter with me out of CB’S Outfitters on Siesta Key.

The weather was quite comfortable and the water was calm to start the contest. Numerous fish were caught such as ladyfish Spanish mackerel catfish lizardfish Jack Crevalle and a few pinfish.

At the end of the day, young Henry was declared the winner by one. Fishing at Sarasota Bay has really picked up over the last few weeks my experience tells me it’s only going to get better.

Fishing has been a lifetime passion for me. Depending on the skill level of my clients what I like to do is put them on big fish using artificial lures. I like to educating and passing on my knowledge of local history and the many sights the area has to offer while we are on the water.
