Got a salt water kid to nominate? Go here to find out how! JUNE FINALIST
Nicholas Chen, 13
Kingston, Jamaica
Nicholas has fished in Belize, England and Ireland; on the west coast of Florida; and in the Florida Keys — in addition to on his home island of Jamaica — but he enjoys catching small fish from the beach or wherever he can wet a line. He caught this nice wahoo, estimated at 45 pounds, off Port Antonio, Jamaica. Nicholas also won a kids fishing tournament out of Tropic Star Lodge in Panama. “I have released two Atlantic sailfish, two Pacific blue marlin and one Pacific sailfish,” Nicholas said, “but I still enjoy fishing for reef fish. Even though I like to eat fish and do keep some, I love to release fish when I catch them so they can grow bigger and increase the population of fish. I hope that more fishermen will learn to release fish so that we will always be able to catch them.” Good idea, Nicholas!

JUNE FINALISTS
Andrew Stokes, 6
Carter Stokes, 7

Richmond, Virginia
During a vacation to Islamorada, Florida, 6-year-old Andrew caught and released both a 100-pound nurse shark and this 70-pound tarpon (far right). Andrew’s brother Carter, 7, caught a 15-inch redfish on the same trip. Both boys like fishing with their dad — Carter caught this 45-pound rockfish (above left) in Tappahannock,Virginia, on his dad’s boat. Sounds like quite a fishing family!

JULY FINALIST
Oliver Polsky, 7
New York, New York
Oliver 1, his brother Max, and his dad, George, fished last summer in search of bluefin tuna on topwater poppers. Oliver spotted the school when it came up and got off a cast. He fought the fish with some fatherly assistance — it was a team effort, but George says Ollie did the bulk of the work. Nice job, Oliver!

JULY FINALIST
Jade Zaccaria, 4
Mystic Island, New Jersey
This past April, 4-year-old Jade 2 reeled in this 34-inch striper by herself, using an innovative two-handed technique (although Dad held the rod). Jade’s look of determination is priceless — the striper never had a chance. Plus those are the coolest fishing boots we’ve seen in some time!

JULY FINALIST
Marlin Moskowitz, 7
Singer Island, Florida
This was Marlin’s 3 first swordfish, caught 14 miles offshore of Florida’s Lake Worth Inlet aboard his dad’s boat, In Roam. Marlin has been fishing off Florida, New Jersey, North Carolina and the Bahamas since he was 2 years old, and he has caught many different species. His dad, Michael, says Marlin is very good at species identification and knows about many different types of fishing. Sounds like it won’t be long until he tangles with a fish that shares his name.
