Birthday trip to coast nets flounder for youngster

When nine-year-old Louis Yanez V’s birthday party in San Antonio had to be canceled, his father knew exactly how to make it up – bring his son to the coast for a fishing trip. That’s exactly what they did over the weekend, and the young man, better known as L.J., successfully brought in a flounder Saturday afternoon as the two were fishing (on 361 toward Port Aransas, just over the bridge).
