Baldwinsville boy has great time fishing off aunt’s dock in Florida

 

Keenan Smith, of Baldwinsville, had a great time fishing off his Aunt Lee’s dock while on spring break with his family in Florida.

His father wrote: “Keenan caught several catfish from the dock while visiting his aunt on spring break. Others in our family caught lady fish, grouper, and crabs. The shot where he is holding up three fingers is the third large catfish he caught that day.

“During our trip, he used Panther Martin spinners, jigs with and without squid for bait, and crank bait lures. He and his sister have been improving their casting skills bass fishing on the rivers in Baldwinsville over the last few years.

Keenan is 8 years old. His sister, Ella is 10 and proved to be quite the caster this year. They have graduated to spinning reels on this trip.

 

Their Aunt Lee lives on Marco Island, Florida. Both she and her late husband, Walt were avid fishers. They often took trips to the keys for several days on their large boat and a small flat boat into the Everglades regularly.

” When her brother Bob, Keenan’s grandfather, was along, Walt would be braver about getting into tight spots, since he would be able to push the boat off of sandbars!

“Now she loves having all her grand kids, nieces and nephews to her place to cut their teeth fishing from her dock.

“I left out other fish caught, here’s a complete list for this trip: lady fish, catfish, sheepshead, spotted sea trout, jacks, red snapper, crabs. We also saw a large ray launch itself fully out of the water and saw a tarpon.”
