I had hoped to put Eli on some of the nicer Reds we've been catching but with the wind blowing hard, we were fortunate to find some small fish in protected water. Didn't matter to him, he was proud of his first redfish!
He caught a total of five and one real nice one was lost when I handed the rod off to him. He enjoyed his "Hookey" day but I've always felt this is an important part of his education too.
Fought to the boat
This is the first of many he will catch
