3-year-old gets the hang of angling

Published Oct. 4, 2005

Zack Moore is only 3 years old, but he already knows one of the secrets to catching snook: You need good bait. Zack likes to pick his own shrimp out of the tanks when buying bait with mom Judie. Zack lives in Tierra Verde and fishes off the dock at his house with his mom watching. His hand-picked baits have produced several nice snook recently. Releasing the fish doesn't bother Zack; it just means he has to make another trip to the bait store. Which is almost as much fun as catching fish.
