I had the pleasure of fishing with Ellen Curio, her 10 year old grandson Mark Christopher (he prefers to be called MC), and MC's uncle Mark this afternoon. MC was in from Nashville visiting his grandma in Sea Isle and she wanted him to catch his first speckled trout. We started fishing around 3:30 PM and Mark caught a 20 inch trout on his very first cast on a plum / chartreuse Texas Red Killer. It wasn't long before MC started putting on a clinic at the back of the boat. He kept me very busy netting his trout.

At around 5 PM a very nasty looking thunderstorm was rolling in and they all agreed that there was enough fish in the box, so we headed to the boat ramp. We boxed a total of 12 trout up to 22 inches and threw back another half dozen or so. MC was responsible for most of the 12 we put in the box and most of the ones that we released.

Everyone caught fish and had a great time, but I think that I probably had the best time of all watching MC, his grandma, and his uncle spend quality time together catching fish and making memories. I drove home with a smile on my face and a tear of joy in my eye. I can't wait to fish with them again in October.
