Obi Wan Kenobi's Story

Obi Wan bit into the wrong piece of bait

Obi Wan had an unfortunate incident with a piece of bait at the Anglins Pier in Ft. Lauderdale. X-Rays later revealed that two hooks were lodged in the throat and intestines. Luckily the hooks were removed successfully, and we were proud to release Obi Wan on 6/14/22.
