Mother load on Mother's Day Weekend

On this very special weekend we will be fishing the famous Florida Middle Grounds in search of the, Mother load on Mother's Day Weekend.

Watch, (13:30 minutes into the video) this lady, this real mother, challenge the Donkey of the Sea.

It's a fight to the finish; question is, whose finish?



The family that fishes together, stays together:



The Great Line Toss:



Will's daughter, Madison, gave dad a few lessons, and it shows:

The long ride out is showtime:



Middle Grounds Mangrove Snapper tend to be a 'little' on the large size. With NO closed season, and a possession limit of 20, they are a 24/7 targeted species.



Remember when we said... 'Middle Grounds Mangrove Snapper tend to be a 'little' on the large size?



The American Red Snapper:



The mighty King:



One of the best eating fish ever to swim, the Scamp Grouper:



On the trip we caught a fish rare to the Middle Grounds, the Yellowmouth Grouper:



Even more rare than a Yellowmouth, the Yellowfin Tuna. This Yellowfin was aught on the Grounds several years ago on the Florida Fisherman ll. The excitement level was off the chart; I know, I took the picture:



Like to catch Red Snapper? The Florida Middle Grounds is the place to be:



Another 'Red' the Red Grouper is fun the catch, and great to eat:









Differently from the Yellowfin, the Blackfin Tuna is common in our waters:



Looking for a fight? Look no more:





The Lady and the Donkey:



Even the mighty Amberjack was no mach for this real woman:



It's been a long, hard fought, night & day:



After a hot shower and a fantastic meal it's time for...



Back at the dock. Another fish seldom see on the Grounds the Jack Crevalle:



Nothing like coming home,'In the money.'
