THE OCTOBER 1997 ANGLER OF THE MONTH

Frank Argus

TRW, Inc. Engineer
Long Beach, California

Frank's trip fell on October 14, right on the full moon. I figured the morning fishing might be tough since the fish had been up all night eating. They were a little reluctant early, but we got them to bite, and Frank put a butt-whippin on them. He was the hands-down winner of this month's AOM award.

Frank, who fishes mostly for pelagics like tuna back home was really surprised at how hard our snook and reds pulled on light tackle, and at what a challenge they were to get away from the mangroves. Frank learned quickly the little tricks I taught him, and before the morning was over he had boated more than a dozen snook to 27 inches, 6 trout to 16 inches, and upwards of 30 beautiful redfish up to 30 inches. We had a fantastic day of action.

Frank comes to visit every year around this time, and left me that morning a happy camper. I expect I'll be seeing him again next year. I'll be looking forward to it.
