Our good friends and their family came down from central Florida to meet up with our family that is visiting from Louisiana and today we were going to take them all out for a half day of fishing but only Tiff and Niko were able to get up this morning to make the departure time.
Oh well, we had a great time with Tiff and Niko catching close to are limit of snapper along with some exciting moments with the big sharks that seem to be everywhere now.
Claudia called yesterday asking if we could take her granddaughters (Trinity and Giselle) out for a three quarter day this morning. With light winds and low chance of rain predicted, I passed them on to Dave and off they went this morning. The winds turned out to be a little more than was predicted and Dave had to shorten the day but not before putting a good bunch of snapper in the box.
John Slifer brought his guys down from Jersey to fish this past weekend. John is the owner of Landover Cooling Towers Inc that installs and services cooling towers for HVAC systems along with other applications that require towers. John has fished with us on numerous occasions in the past but this was the first time he brought his guys along to fish also.
Captain Dave tried fishing for a number of different species, that day, yellowtail snapper and mackerel being the most productive. Half the guys were on another boat that also did well on the snapper.
John will be back onboard the beginning of December (as lookout once again) just in case CP decides to go overboard for another swim.
Mike and his family got up close and personal with a big bull shark Friday evening out in Whale Harbor channel. We had put the evening off for a couple days as hurricane Nicole's winds were pretty strong before finally abating as Nicole moved farther north. They caught other sharks that evening but the highlight of the evening was this big bull.
A couple days ago it was sailfish and then yesterday Dave found mahi. It is that time of the year where there is a transition from summer to winter fishing so the mates don't know which season they will be in on any give day and have to be prepared both.
A bunch of nice fish for Mike and his guys. More of our folks which have returned year after year to fish with us. Thanks Mike.
This is Captain Dave keeping you updated on our recent fishing adventures
