A Slam For Emmett
I recently had my best day on the water so far this month fishing with 4 year-old Emmett Walker and his dad Kyle. Emmett showed us how it's done by landing the Inshore Slam of a redfish, snook, and a lot of trout. The best part of the trip was watching him bring in several of these fish on his 4' Ugly Stick and Zebco push-button reel. I have to admit that I borrowed the rod from him for a while and landed a few trout on it myself. It's more fun than you can imagine landing saltwater gamefish on a kid's bluegill gear. Great job, Emmett. Can't wait to get you a tarpon next summer.
