Galveston fishing

Luke Clayton

Howdy Folks!

This week I'm making it short and sweet.  I'm working on a story about shark fishing in the Gulf of Mexico with our old friend, Captain Mike, and I've made the trip into one last family vacation before school starts.  I'm sending pictures for you to enjoy of my grandson, Jack, catching a shark from the pier, and a big one he landed with the help of Captain Mike.

Right now, the kids are over at Schlitterbahn Water Park.  It's great family fun.  Their website is: schlitterbahn.com

There are few fishing trips more exciting than shark fishing.  My friend, Captain Mike Williams of Galveston, Texas, told me it was like standing on a corner, a Harley comes by going about 80 mph- downtown with both barrels, and you throw a hook out to snag it.  That described it exactly right.  It's a heck of a fight.
