It’s a joy for me to take families out fishing. I could tell Allan just wanted his girls to have a good fishing experience. So, we stayed close to shore and got the drags squealing. After catching a bunch of smaller fish on light tackle, we put out the trolling polls and started trolling ballyhoo. We caught a bunch of big hard fighting cuda which the girls just loved. The cobia below was the icing on the cake. He came up and gobbled down a large trolling lure with ballyhoo. It made me smile as Allan coached his older daughter Abbey, on how to fight the fish. When she finally got it in and the cobia hit the deck, I had to capture the joyous family moment with my camera.
