Sheldon Drives The Distraction
Sheldon from near Austin, Tx. brought his mom and dad on an 8 hour family deep sea fishing trip today. I have had kids drive the boat on a daily basis. Today was an extraordinary day fishing. The bite was slow at first until that sun went down a bit. The seas were a little choppy with an East wind but we managed to catch some nice Red Snapper and a couple of King Mackerel. Don and Shelley sat back today and watched Sheldon catch some nice big fish. Sheldon came upstairs on the way in and asked could he drive the boat. For over 25 miles, the autopilot was off but I could not tell it. Sheldon kept the boat on heading and steered us all the way home. Sheldon is a natural young captain. I bet someday he will be running his own boat. You know, Orange Beach is family oriented. It’s days like this that make my day special. Seeing kids with their parents catching fish and building memories. I really enjoy watching a family have fun and catch a few fish.
