Went out with a buddy for a few hours of wreck fishing on Monday. It was a gorgeousday, warm sun, cool water and as smooth as it ever gets out there. We caught sm grouper, huge bull reds and of course a billion red snapper. It was good for the soul to stay bowed up non stop, even if they all had to go backafter this winter. This was my first time jigging on a wreck, loved it! Can't wait to do it again! Thank God summer is BACK!

Yes it is. They are magnificent fish. I never get used to the shimmeringcolor and the details of the scales and thetransparent fins. They taste pretty nice too =) It pains me to have to cut into them and not just because their scales are like armor.

Not really, I've gone out a time or two with friends that had little intention of getting their butts kicked in the tower all day so we gave up. I think I saw one on Monday, could have been a shark, I didn't get a good look. I've only been on drive the boat duty when I have gone. I've got the eye for it but not the boat or crew.
