Default The Florida Fisherman ll @ her very best

On July 4, 1776, our Continental Congress adopted the Declaration on Independence; the birth of American independence; the birth of freedom! 'We are America' We are FREE!

For the avid sportsman/woman there is no better place than the decks of the Florida Fisherman ll, out of Hubbard's Marina, to celebrate our freedom. Open wide John's Pass Bridge; we are on a mission, a mission to catch fish:
So long Madeira Beach, Florida. Next stop snapper land:

Let's troll for kings on the way out:

One very good thing about Florida fishing, as one season closes; another begins. Mr. Michael Fierro celebrates the opening of a five month gag grouper season:


Next month, a long amber jack season opens. Mr. Robert Jones vented and released this trophy. See you next month:

Ever see a tuna after a shark attack. It's not pretty:

The gags are even biting at night. This is going to be a great season:

We are fishing the full moon period; the mangrove snapper are on fire and they are big!


Captain Garett (L) & first mate Will, look over the Florida's huge fish box stuffed full of mangrove snapper:


We may not have fire works 100 miles off Madeira Beach, but we can still celebrate the fourth of July with the best burgers imaginable:

OK! Time to go to work:




Let's check out the red grouper & scamp:




Looks like it's time for some serious American red fishing:

Talk about impressive:

The pride of the Gulf, the American red snapper:











Mr. Pham can catch a lot more than scamp grouper and mangrove snapper:

Talk about serious snapper fishing. Many have already limited out, and that's a two day limit:

Mr. Philipp Mehlenbacher, fishing out of Winter Garden, Florida, can't believe what he is seeing:

None of us can; the deck of the Florida Fisherman is red with snapper:


Mr. Ray Summeraur traveled from Marietta, Georgia for this fight:

Finally! It was worth every mile:

We watch in amazement as our sun dives into the warm, crystal clear, tropical water. Priceless!

First a hot shower, followed by the best Lasagna dinner in the entire universe, and then our air conditioned bunks.
What a way to celebrate freedom...'We are America!'
Let's check out our 'mountain' of fish; see who won the jack pots, and count
the days until we can do it all over again.

Here is a picture I neglected to include in my report. We have never seen a fish like this on the Florida before.
I know what it is. Do you?

Thanks guys!
Will, fist mate on the Florida, identified it as a yellow eye snapper. I have found that many fish have different names. Bob
