Took a family of four today for a half day charter Father, mother, and 2 youngsters 11 and 4 we started off the day with a solid redfish bite landing 4 fish and losing 3 more the youngins were thrilled since it was their first fish! we then moved to a couple other spots as the tide got higher in search of some snook we caught multiple snook ranging in size from 21 to 30 inches.
