Today is Christmas

A good day for working and fishing; my two favorite activities. Last night I fished with Aaron Snell and Lenny Leonard; we captured a few nice trophies. I am heading over to Fitz and Dotty’s tonight, looking forward to seeing them both. Happy holidays, Nathaniel

Fishing in the Everglades

Yesterday I headed up to the Everglades to fish with Captain Joe Rodriguez. We had a small window of opportunity to look for the six, so we decided to take it. We left Summerland at 5 am and drove to Islamorada, where we were on the water heading for the glades at 6:45. At our…
