It’s often said some things don’t happen until they do for the first time.

Such was the case for a paramedic with Los Fresnos Emergency Services who went on a fishing trip in the upper Laguna Madre.

On his first fishing trip on a boat, Edgar Bazan also caught his first fish ever.

“This is neat,” he said, holding a 16-inch plus speckled trout. “I have been fishing two or three times before, but this a first for me.”

Bazan, who lives in Brownsville, went on a recent fishing trip with a friend on bay waters across from Port Mansfield in Willacy County.

As he kept on casting using a live croaker, Bazan finally caught the fish, brought it on boat with a net and started showing the scaly specimen just like people show a trophy.

“I have fished several times before,” he said. “But I never have caught anything.”

But after several hours on the boat, Bazan caught not just one but his limit of five speckles that ended up in a deep fryer.

The 37 year old started working with Los Fresnos EMS in 2011 and also works for the Brownsville Fire Department and the Port Isabel EMS since 2005.

Asked how he liked fishing, he said: “I loved it. I don’t really have the time to go fishing and I would like to do it again.”
