Huge Early November Catch

As a Florida native it is my privilege and honor to showcase our Heaven on Earth to a nation eager to learn what the Sunshine State is all about.
For over seventy years I have been fishing our waters and hunting our woods. What a ride it has been.

And the ride continues.
On 10/22/21 we were honored to welcome a gentleman from the great state if Tennessee.

A gentleman who will now an for ever more be known as the Sailfish Master. It was the Master's first trip on the Florida Fisherman II. Using a boat rod he caught one of the biggest Sailfish ever caught on the Florida. Being a true sportsman the great fish was released to fight again.
Tennessee Dave, a regular on the Florida, is more than willing to travel many miles to fish our waters:

Dave is a good friend, a real gentleman, and a very good fisherman. He writes:
"After seeing how well those Tennessee boys did, I got on the next Tuesday trip.

The Gag Grouper Bite is HOT:

As the weather cools the Bite will get even HOTTER!




What an honor welcoming ladies to the deck of the Florida:

These ladies, these real women, are just as much at home on the water as they are in their own homes:

Dave, that's a beautiful Mangrove Snapper:

The bite continues:




Mangrove Snapper can be caught in rivers, bays, close to shore, and well offshore.
The offshore 'Mango' runs much larger than his/her closer to shore cousins:


And the 'catch' is just the beginning:

Often the women take us to school.

It's been a long hard-fought night day:
