Catch of The Day !
All morning we caught a lot of yellow fin bass. I mean a lot of them - about 85. These are about 14-17 inches long and about 2 lbs. They fight just like large mouth bass, but I noticed their skin, when removing the hooks, was a lot stronger. We caught so many fish that I did not have time to snap off too many pictures with the exception of the big ones.
Parker's first catch and his reward.
Things got exciting when we landed this 3 foot needle fish. This fish put up a good fight and the kids thought it was great since it was so different than anything we caught before.
A few minutes later we caught a few small groupers. This one bled all over the place. If you look at my picture closely, you will see there is blood all over my shirt and pants. I felt like a real fisherman than !
This was the catch of the day. A 25 lbs Snapper that took about 10 minutes to bring in. This was the largest fish any of us have ever caught.
We caught a smaller one later.
Here is how things turned out !
