Akhil, Kevin and Tim at Hilton Head Redfish and Shark Fishing

During spring break, we went to Hilton Head, SC and stayed at Vallemare at Palmetto Dunes.  We brought along my youngest son Tim and his good friends Akhil Gowda and Kevin Taggart.   We had a place right on the ocean.  We did all the normal beach stuff including jet skiing, skim boarding, boogy-boarding as well as fishing in Palmetto Bay.   Below (from left to right) is Tim, Kevin and Akhil and they are on the Mighty Mako with Captain Dave Fleming.

Above is Akhil reeling in a monster Redfish.  Below is Akhil holding the huge Redfish he caught.  It was so big, Captain Dave Flemming pulled out HIS camera to take a photo.

Above is Kevin catching a Bull Shark.  Kevin brought it up to the boat and the Captain decided not to use a net and it slipped out of his hands, but it absolutely still counts as a catch for Kevin.

Above is Tim catching a Shovelhead shark.
