Caught Aboard the:
Ross & Lisa visiting from Germany
Today I was fortunate enough to have Ross and Lisa who are visiting Ross's father in Cape Canaveral. This is a well earned rest for Ross who is in the US Army and stationed in Germany. I has been a long awaited opportunity for them and their two children to visit their grandparents and enjoy a little R & R.
Unfortunately the pogies have disappeared so off to Pelican Flats we went and with spinning minnows (Spanish Sardines) and a few ribbonfish we had slow but steady action for most of the day. Like I told Ross and Lisa just before we started to head in I had hoped for a little more action but there was enough to eliminate the boredom and ended up what I call a "Heinz 57" day. This was Lisa's first trip offshore and she really took to it like a fish to the water and as you can see from the picture below showed really good form for a newbie to offshore fishing.
Fortunately the kingfish cooperated and we were able to put together enough kingfish filets to provide for a really good fish fry and some for the freezer as well. I really enjoyed their company and hope that I'll get to see them again in the future.
Final tally for the day:
Lisa showing good form for a newbie.
Ross assuring Lisa that he has
everything under control
and, no I won't let him get away.
Ross & Lisa with today's catch.
