Jim Keyes–Views From Island Discount Tackle 03-30-2013
Island Discount Tackle: (941) 779-2838

—–Congratulations to Joey Dyer who wins this week’s CANAL MONSTER SNATCH award for this impressive black drum which he wrestled into submission from a prime corner of our docks in the Holmes Beach Boat Basin!
—–Joey was visiting Anna Maria on vacation and fishing with a friend when the big drum whacked his lively shrimp.
—–After an epic battle which attracted plenty of attention and advice from passers-by, Joey managed to land the fish with the help of our own Jonny Keyes who rushed a landing net to the scene in the nick of time.
—–In keeping with tradition, the Island Discount Tackle staff will salute Joey’s accomplishment by drinking a beer in his honor at the next opportunity (maybe twice). Thanks Joey, we like this award!!
