The first time we were exposed to bass fishing was through our stepfather when Frank Cote was 10 years old in 1969. Our stepfather took all us 5 boys up to Sebring, Florida we stayed in a cabin around a beautiful lake our stepfather would get us up early in the morning and we would take a little boat with a motor on it and take us out to a spot that he knew from the past had bass, it was the best summer I remember with my brother Frank. He was hooked on fishing from that time on.
About a year later in Miami where we grew up we went fishing in a lake by Miami international airport Frank’s first bass he caught on his own, I remember him getting a bite and he just turned around and started running and he dragged that Bass across the grass across the gravel that sucker was dead for sure within a couple minutes since then Franco has perfected his fishing skills as everybody on the river knows.
Franco’s Celebration of Life will be on August 11, 2018 at Wekiva Falls Camp Ground near the Boat Ramp side from 11:00AM to 5:00PM.
