Great Ladyfish Action Off Pine Island
When the water temps drop almost 15 degrees in 24 hours and the wind pushes all the water off the flats, which is what happened this weekend, I'm happy to catch anything. And when I've got a five-year-old angler on the boat I'm really happy to catch some big ladyfish. This is Miles Griswold from Connecticut who came out with his dad Steve this morning in hopes of landing a shark. Unfortunately that didn't work out but Miles had an awesome time hauling in lots of slimy ladyfish. It got even better when a pod of dolphins showed up and tried stealing every one we hooked. Talk about a total blast to watch. This might have actually been one of the best charters I've run so far this year.
