Fishing With Steve, Part 3

Day two ended with some fish that were dipping their tails into the sunlight, and we saw a fish that was very close to the boat that provided a good shot, but I broke the tippet on the hook set. This was the end of day 2, and we returned home for a lovely dinner…

Fishing With Steve, Part 1

On Sunday night, Aaron and I drove to Everglades City to fish with Captain Steve Huff. After hitting a wayward alligator on 41, we arrived safely at our hotel and inspected the Goose (astro van) for damage. There wasn’t much, and we retired by 11:30 for a 6:30 breakfast meeting.

fish/front

It certainly is cold in Key West (for Key West) though it will end, according to the reports, this weekend. The front rolled through heavy, and Aaron was on hand to capture its arrival: He also captured many little tunny in Key West harbor and provided these photos: That’s it for now, the weather won’t…
