Caught Aboard the:
A half day birthday fishing trip for mom
from her kids Allison, Chris, Andreu and Melissa
Today my fishing buddies were a really
great family from Merritt Island. Mother Wendy had a birthday and her
kids all got together to get her what she really wanted, a day of
offshore fishing out of Port Canaveral. Allison contacted me about her
mothers wishes and I am really glad we hooked up.
First order of business was a quick stop at the marina for a
little fuel and a final pit stop of civilized facilities for the ladies.
Then as usual, down the beach and everyone was soon doing the pogie pick
up getting the live bait we'd need to take care of business for the day.
After getting the bait we were off to 8A again since it has been so
reliable lately. As it turned out it came through again today as we were
able to get our 12 fish limit of Kingfish with the largest being a
whopper 32 pounder caught by Chris. Mom got her wish many times over and
also scored the highest number on the variety scale with Kings, Cobia
and a Barracuda.
Everyone in the family caught more than one fish today and it
was my honor to be their guide for the day. The weather again was
absolutely beautiful with calm winds and smooth seas and the fish were
very cooperative all day. Man I love my job and love it when a plan
BTW, word has it that there was a major fish fry somewhere on
Final tally for the day:
12 Kingfish limit with Chris with the largest weighing in at 32#
1 Barracuda for a quick picture and back in the H2O to fight again
1 Cobia too short to keep
A bunch of Atlantic Sharpnose Sharks released
It's a 32 pound Kingfish for Chris!
A Cobia for mom too bad it's an inch
Allison get a nice sized King
Andreu and Wendy with a Brace of nice
Mom Wendy gets a Barracuda!
Today's happy family crew with a
limit of Kings.
