Push Dont Pole

So we were fishing out in Florida Bay for tailing redfish.

I was poling a guy to a couple fish tailing. And I guess I went to push and lean into it a little bit, and fell right off the back of the platform into the water.

Disturbed everything I thought.

Looked back up as I grabbed the push pole when I was in the water and saw the fish still tailing. So, I told the guy to keep casting, and while I was still in the water, I just pushed the boat about another 10 feet… he ended up catching the fish.
