Bradford sat on the bow of the boat and skillfully cast his lure to spots as directed by his boat captain. He mastered “walking the dog” and jigging soft plastics purely by feel, again with direction from the captain. Bradford displayed Marine marksmanship with a 125-year-old Holland & Holland 500 Express, owned by David Boyles, when he shot a bull’s-eye at 40 yards. This was accomplished with the help of LCpl Josh McDaniel, who called the elevation and alignment over Bradford’s shoulder. These guys genuinely care for one another and take pride in the successes of their Marine brothers.
