Your personal and fishing accomplishments:
Best Fishing Story: I can remember when I was 3 years old and my grandfather Frank Harrison would take me fishing. We would get up at 3 am and my grandmother would fix us breakfast and boiled egg sandwiches for lunch. We would head for Shell Point in Florida and go fishing for Red fish, Speckled Sea Trout and grouper. I can still see my grandfather fishing from the back of his boat talking to the fish and casting his favorite lure, a Webber Mr Champ with a yellow or white bucktail treble hook. When I would get tired I always would take a nap under the front deck
It is to my grandfather that I give all the credit for my love of fishing. Later on I was able to return the favor and was able to take my grandfather fishing for bass in Florida. It was the last time that we ever fished together. THANK YOU GRANDADDY FOR TEACHING ME TO FISH !!!! I LOVE YOU !!! Grandson #1.
