Kid Trips

I kinda hate posting these trips because the big game guys are't impressed. But I have had a few pretty short anglers the last two days. Eight to ten year old kids. So nothing that will blow wind up your skirts, but happy kids. Just a part of life guys, put the kids on fish, don't worry about size and don't freak them out so the never want to fish saltwater again.

The kids had a ball. The catch was less than impressive. Job one though is to make sure the kids had a fun trip. I did that and still caught dinner. Fishing younger kids is tough for many captains. I enjoy teaching them how to cast and how to fight fish. It is kinda cool that they listen while dad normally doesn't.

Nate, my junior angler today, is a much improved caster and caught fish. He learned not to wind against the drag and acquitted himself quite well as a salt water fisherman.

Marathon in the Florida Keys should be your next fishing vacation destination. Join us for charter fishing, fishing guide trips or our fishing 101 so you can fish on your own with better success.

Tight lines,

Capt. Dallas
