Today was kind of special for me, I took out my youngest angler in 25 years of guiding. Kai just turned 3 on Nov 15 and handled himself like a Little  Pro for 4 hrs. Pictures here is Myself and Kai holding his first Peacock Bass he caught himself on the first shiner.



As the day went on his courage built up to touching, then holding the fish by himself.

This is a non profit organization where we take children with cancer from the Joe DiMaggio Hospital out fishing . The goal for me is to put a smile on their faces and take them away from the daily routine of treatments they must to go through.

God bless these Children.

At the end of this day the family caught over 20 fish mostly Peacock Bass a few Mylans and some Largemouth Bass.
