9 Year Girl Smoking Trout Fourchon

What a great day, woke up at 530am and looked at the radar. Storms were building over Fourchon so I knew we had to get the job done quick. I had the Hayden's and there 9 year old daughter Sophia, it was her first time in a boat inshore and first trout. I ended up lucky because the first two stops produced zip. I finally move towards the beach right in the breakers and bam.. it was a fish every cast. Sophia had a Zepco and she landed some quality trout by herself. We followed the proper initiation by a little slime to the face, you should have seen her expression. We was only able to fish an hour as the storm started to build and I had to leave them biting. Every two minutes the girls said lets go even as we were doubling up on quality trout. Good call because soon as the boat hit the trailer the bottom fell out. We fished with live shrimp under a cork and had the boat positioned in the breakers. Look for the bait and birds and anyone can load the boat up. Great time and Sophia has her first trout experience .
