Jonna and William
The day started out with William telling me that Jonna has never boated a fish by herself from start to finish on any charter that they have ever done. Oh my lord, my work is cut out today!!!!! But Jonna caught on quick as far as casting. I told them when they boarded that we were going upriver and we would be throwing only artificial baits. Cast and Reel. William’s eyes lit up and said, “Maybe there is something else we can do”!! Negative!!! I got this one. She learned fast and the Dear Lord was watching down her. She was casting like a veteran after a few lessons and it was only a matter of time!! 10 mins all it took, She hooks up and works the Red to the boat, That’s right, only 10 mins. A 22 inch Redfish, from start to finish all by herself. I was so proud of her because she had no confidence what so ever. But she did it!!!! Her 1st Redfish, From start to finish, and ARTIFICIAL BAIT TO BOOT!!! Smiles from ear to ear!!!! Great for you Jonna. It is a Great accomplishment!! Not many can say that on Artificial.
The charter boated approximately 8 for the half day charter. William did boat Reds also but the story of the day was about her, she boated 5!!!
It was a great day for them and for me also, to see her boat that first fish was worth the whole trip for me. That’s why I charter, for these days!!!
Thanks for the great memories
