The daily catch
Frank catching tarpon and sharks off the boat, while the boat is sitting on the hoist. That's Coast Guard Frank to the right.
Randy with a bonnethead shark
Aaron hooked up to a six-foot reef shark offshore. Notice dad holding on the back of the harness. The belt and harness, and the rod and reel, are all combined as one piece. We have a tether rope that connects the rod and reel unit. In case the angler gets pulled overboard, we won't lose the rod and reel unit (or the angler).

Taking your day's catch to the restaurant (usually Lazy Days) and having them cook them 2-3 different ways. A wonderful way to end your day.
