stayed close to Bud and Mary's
weather was great the whole time we were there. Lots of lightning at night in the distance so we had great light shows at night. Blue water was nice the whole time so I did not even bother fishing inshore. tried 2 nights for tarpon with no luck.
Caught a new pretty fish while on the the patches
A yellow bar jack
This was actually the third that we hooked. The munchkin was casting out to all the little yellow tail around the boat the the line kept TAKING off. The first 2 broke off. The third one she kinda gave up on and gave me the rod. i was really curious what it was. Thought big snapper or grouper but it would run horizontally. Took me about 20 minutes to get it to the boat with the light tackel but it was fun. Took a few photos and let him go. Found out later they are really good to eat.
Played with some of these and kept one for dinner. This was her first.
I lost about a 40 lber at the boat when my wire leader broke and another 25 lber because I left the reel on strike.
Taught the kids how to scare the tourists
it was fun
