Dead Fish Charters alive and kicking at Grayton Beach

For more than four decades, Capt. Larry Pentel has been fishing off the beaches of Walton County.

"It's never the same two days running," said Pentel of Dead Fish Charters.

Nevertheless, he does know how and where to find the fish.

Wednesday morning he took a group of hard-core fisherman out on a four-hour trip and they brought back a 75-pound cobia and a limit of red snapper. In the afternoon, he took his neighbors out, the Barretts, for a short trip of snapper fishing.

"We were out an hour-and-twenty minutes to get these," he said looking at the snapper hanging on the side of the boat. "And we were never more than three miles from the truck."

For Foley Barrett, 9, and his brother Bridger, 11, it was their first time to Gulf fish.

"This was the funnest fishing trip I've ever had," Foley said. "It was hard. I won … I caught the most fish."
