Fishing Isn’t All Luck, but…


”A few minutes later, Chris called out that he had a fish on. The boy fought the fish for less than a minute before it broke off, and when he retrieved his line, he determined he was bitten off by a bluefish. His father cut off the remainder of the leader and tied on one of his homemade wire leaders. Chris baited up and made another cast. Not five minutes later, the youngster set up again, and this time he battles the fish to the finish and finally works it up onto the shore. His father assists him in the landing, and in the unhooking process, he detects another leader in the bluefish’s mouth, the same one that Chris had lost a few minutes before.
