Ponce 7-26-13 Hookin up Rookies

Fished with my nephew Ben and a friend from Philly who has recently relocated to palm coast Wayne and his bro in law Bill. I spent the day before rigging tackle and extra leaders cause this aint my first rodeo. Got to the ramp early 510 am and of course they are lost.:banghead as the boats were starting to come in I said to heck with it and went ahead and launched her solo.:crossed Luckily I didn't hold anybody up as they were staging:):fishing. They finally made it and off we went twas a little sloppy and windy we made bait and got to the spot. After some coaching on ssnatching :nonothe circle hooks away from the fish some tangled linesbirdnest reels:banghead and some where the fish just won we managed to get our limit. Moved away from the spot for some seabass and after a couple keepers I could tell they were done cause there weren't any baits going down. I pulled out a couple trollers rigged some old hoos and ran 3 poles. Dang if we didn't catch a nice cow and a little later a schoolie:cool: that hit the flatline then went and got hooked on the shotgun line that had a bird followed by a hoo with a seawitch. Got back to the ramp handed them all the fish they asked if I was gonna clean them for them.:rotflmao:nono Ha I said start learning. Packed her up and headed to the house. This was the biggest fish they have ever caught I was proud to put them on them but DTM is beat. Talked to them this am and they have a apt at 11 for a local fish house to clean there fishies:grinIMG_1195_zpsd7d23bd2.jpg[/IMG_1200_zpsd3df7c87.jpgURL]IMG_1203_zps65d82a2a.jpgIMG_1208_zps5689b392.jpg
