Mattson’s Redfish

Mattson, our little boy, has been asking me for a big boy fishing pole. So being that he turns 4 on Saturday, we gave him a Zebco 202 with a 5.5 foot rod.

Today he wore it out, catching 2 of his 3 reds by himself. Put a 1/2oz black spoon or a crazy mullet and he could throw it a mile. Luckily we had a pod of redfish that we were able to keep up with. He landed 2-26’s and a 27” red for dinner tonight. He also fought one I hooked on a DSL strawberry wine, which was 33”. He said it was HUGE!
