Default A Good catch in rough seas

Good catch in rough seas
Last weekend's weather forecast called for 5-6 foot waves Saturday morning, then calming down some later on. Early Saturday saw 6-7 footers. Absolutely NO danger for a boat as big as the Florida Fisherman ll. I decided to set this one out, but, Thanks to Mr. John Martin & Mr. Dylan Hubbard, we have some excellent pictures to share.
Ed starts the show with a nice blackfin tuna:

Then came the fights:




Oh no! The dreaded lion fish. We are seeing these way too often:

The red grouper were running big:

Often it was difficult to get away from the 'ENDANGERED' American red snapper.

First mate, Will, reports venting & releasing over 100 ARS. Suggest reserving your spot ASAP. The Florida Fisherman ll will sell out on virtually all ARS trips. And there is a good reason why:

The gags were well represented also. Mr. John Martin took time out from his busy fishing schedule to snap some on the water pictures. Thank you John:


Ed caught a lot more than tuna:

First mate,Will, reports that the late Saturday evening mangrove snapper bite was 'insane!' Next weekend's overnight trip should be a good one. Hopefully it will be a little calmer; regardless, A 'Good catch in rough seas' is ALWAYS possible.
Back at the dock:


Thanks to Mr. John Martin, Mr. Will McClure, and Mr. Dylan Hubbard for contributing to this report.

It's nice to see Mr. Ed out there still catching the fish & winning the money pot. I hope I can still do it by then.

Nice report as always! What is the deal with the sign about the heads being locked nine miles or 20 minutes from dockside?

Government regulations most likely. I never noticed them being locked.
