Thawing out, and reeling 'em in- Southwest Florida

Florida has some of the best fishing on the planet,
I was lucky enough to sample it once again. 

Fishing the shallow mangrove maze in a small craft for redfish and snook is my favorite.

                                      Brooks caught a leaping snook "all by himself". 

"Great Oden's Raven! What did I get myself into?"

This hammerhead was a bucket list fish for me. Wow was he tough. I traded a few thousand feet of line with this fish and grabbed hold of the leader 6-7 times during a dozen or more huge runs. 

Fishing with loved ones makes for an ideal vacation.

Dare I say it...snapper does indeed rival fresh walleye fillets.

Cheers and hook-sets!
