Fished the third day with Dan and Dusty. The wind let up so we hit the flats. We released a 35 pound lemon shark and broke off another about the same size. We then headed to the Everglades where we caught two snook. The bigger snook was well over ten pounds. We also caught specks and lady fish. It was a beautiful day.
Fished with Dan and Dusty for the second day. Still windy. Still went. Had one tarpon release plus big jacks and mangrove snappers rounded out the day. We also had a black grouper and a gag grouper. Lots of fish close to home.
Fished with Dusty and Dan in Islamorada. The wind was blowing twenty plus but who cares? We went anyway. We were rewarded with two tarpon releases and we jumped a third. We also had jacks to nine pounds and mangrove snappers. Great day with great people.
