After many trips to the island, I finally spot a school patrolling the sandbar and make a single cast. A flash in the water is followed by line stripping and the roar of the motor, keeping our recreational craft off the bar. I land the ghostly red and look up to see a nearby charter fish-less and fog approach. This great catch deserved a kiss and the fisherman…a CROWN!
