His father!

Aw, c'mon guys, not that way.  Sheesh...

Norm's father is, appropriately enough, his dad.  He's also the fellow who operates Ft. Lauderdale's Water Bus for Broward County, and I've been managing a study looking at possibilities for water transit here in Miami-Dade.  Our paths recently crossed, we spoke, he (Bob) noted my interest in kayaking, told me of his son's kayak fishing in Texas.

He independently sent me the link to Norms' Big Fish pics.

And that's some BIG
fantastic fish he's got there!  Later photo examination-derived estimates of fish length ran to around 53", about equalling the Texas record.  It's certainly the biggest red caught on (off?) a yak in The GRRRRreat State of Texas...!

More power to ya', Norm, as you haul in those big reds -and more! -as you

Paddle On!

Florida has some big reds too!

Caught this guy Sunday, 100 yards off the beach just north of St. Augustine.

There are bigger ones than this out there.:p
