Kids count slam tourney!!!

Well the kids count tourney was today and my son has been waiting to fish it.. Ofcourse the wind was blowing more than they siad it was.. The goal was to just have alot of fun and see what happens.. Headed out early and hit my 1st spot to try and pick up a redfish and my son lands a decent flounder about 18", which I was happy about to go ahead and get that out the way.. Headed to catch some trout and we hammered them got a quick 17" and then wanted to try for the last part of the puzzle which was the red.. Caught a few shorts and then hook a nice one abour 25" and it pulled the hook right when I was netting him... Elijah was super bummed.. Hit my last red spot I had that I knew I could catch one on high tide and within 5 mins he hooked a hoss and Elijah was fighting it and SNAP... I thought to myself the redfish just arent gonna be caught today.. The rain from last night and the front that was moving in had then acting weird.. Threw back out and he hooked a decent fish and got it to the boat.. Outta everyone in the torney only 2 people had made a Slam and my Son was one of them... Super proud DAD I am.. Will find out the results tomorrow but as I see it my son had the best time and was all smiles and that by itself is a Win Win...
