The Catch

Local angler and regular client Alec last fished with me a couple of months ago and on that day the last cast of the day was to a group of feeding bonefish which he hooked and lost about 50 yards into the run courtesy of the neighboring coral heads. Today Alec jumped aboard with a laser focus on bonefish. The bonefishing was slower than expected but Alec stayed focused on the goal so we pressed on. On the last flat of the trip we stake out and wait. Not longer after, a grey shadow moves into the shallow white sand bank we were on and eats the shrimp we offered it. The rod doubled over, a silver flash raced across the flat and Alec hangs on as the fish sizzles 150 yards of line off the reel on the initial run. Wow! After the long run the bonefish burns up it’s energy reserves and comes to the landing net. What a feeling! I never get used to this! Some pictures later Alec releases his bonefish and I’m pumped. Another fish moves in, goes right up to our bait and swims off. Call me greedy but I wanted that fish too for Alec. What a way to end a gorgeous summer day in Miami!
