A half day for Jack, Ryann and Delaney Daniels
from Ashland, Va.

    Today my fishing buddies were Jack Daniels and his son Ryann and his daughter Delaney who are visiting East Central Florida from Ashland, Va. The pogies were again not available due to the continuing cold water upwelling so we had to settle for a decent net full of 7"-12" silver mullet. Not what Capt. John ordered but, as I always say, "Live bait is ALWAYS better than dead bait.
    After getting our live mullet it was off to 8A again and to say it was sloooooooooow would have been an understatement. It was hot, very slow bite but the folks were a fun bunch and were content to be out on a calm, beautiful ocean for a half day. I wasn't a skunker, and we did catch enough for a tasty dinner ending the day with two decent kings. I would have been even tastier had we been able to keep the Cadillac Red Snapper that Ryann caught while slow trolling a mullet on the downrigger. Shame on you NMFS (National Marine Fisheries Service), please do your homework and realize that there isn't a problem with the Red Snapper other than the one you have artificially created.

Final tally for the day:
2 Kingfish
1 Barracuda released  and one small and kept for the table.
1 Cadillac Red Snapper released for no good reason.

Ryann with his first Kingfish, dinner is served.

Ryann bowed up on a mystery fish while Delaney
watches with anxious anticipation.

And the mystery fish an alleged endangered species
a Red Snapper of about 12 pounds
