Finn's Story

That's not a fish you caught!

Finn had some trouble at Dania Beach Pier, where they took a bite of the wrong squid and accidentally was caught by a fisherman there.

If you love to fish, consider using barbless hooks in the future, just in case you get the wrong kind of bite from someone like Finn!
