Pfeiffer: We run on a tight schedule, but invariably, after chumming for two hours, a shark will show up five minutes before we need to leave—and a kid will hook into it. You're guaranteed to be late, but what can you do? Be the grumpy captain who cuts the line? No way. Because not only does the kid get excited, but also the entire boat. And once you get back to the dock, I don't care if you catch a limit of world-record red snapper, all everyone wants to look at is the shark. This happened recently on the boat with a family from Minnesota. At first, the 10-year-old son didn't know what he'd hooked, but my deckhand and I did, so we played it up as we helped him reel. "Here it comes!" we said. "It's a man-eater!" The kid was the hero of the trip.
