The Bedznar’s from Chicago have been fishing with “The Hawghunter” for the past 12 years. Today was special because this was the first time 7 year Old Mathew came fishing with us. His older brother Mike who was 7 the first time he fished with me and is now 18, started things off with the first fish of the day. Then Matt got his first Florida Bass from the Everglade’s.

What a Fight

 Matt needed a little help from Dad, Chuck holding up his Bass.
Within an hour young Matt set the hook on his trophy a nice 21-1/4 ” by 14 -1/2 ” Bass. This will earn him a certificate from the State of Florida for catching one over 5 LB. By 11:00 AM it was so hot, so we called it a day around noon, and headed to the swimming pool.
The real Family Angler, Amy  was left behind taking care of the youngest, 4 year old Grace.

4.5 LB. Peacock Bass

All the bass today were caught on Shiner’s and released for the Next Angler to catch.
