Sorry for the small pics.

 

Diclaimer: All clients, mates and captains knew their photo would be shared whether online or in the newspapers and Florida Sportsmans mag.

 

Reminiscing a little. Although my favorite seasons in order are fall, spring, winter then summer...I am missing it down there. Had the hours to get my captains license but broke my hand, maybe a little depression settled in temporarily, moved back here, was young and dumb(still am)...all good! If I didn't come back up here I would never have met my beautiful fiancé and been blessed with a beautiful young daughter so Ill take that any day of the week!

 

Just a few pics from back then. I didn't care for pics as I had and have nothing to prove. I just like to help others catch and release and/or kill honestly(doesnt mean I don't enjoy it!)....Captain and many others said "son, without pics, its just another fish story!" So although I don't post everything and forget pics many times, Im getting better at it. I really enjoyed being able to catch anything a client wanted. I picked it up on my own for the most part and was a well respected mate in no time down there and not tootin my horn but that's not always easy to do down there when that IS the way of life...unless you dive or youre in real estate. Many times was told to leave some wahoo for the other boats LOL

 

Enjoy guys and girls and tight lines the rest of the spring/summer/fall/winter(if you partake)!

Haha exactly! Definitely gaffed way too far back...oops. 1 of hundreds of hoos i had my share of bad hits for sure... I guess its better than a "swing n a miss" LOL. Thanks man yea it was a heck of an experience and Ive gotta say, those cast net vids posted by a while ago(on here I believe?) had me missing the days of throwin my 10 and 12 footers on schools of ballyhoo before the gulls pushed em deep and hoop nettin speedos and so much else
