My buddy was down from Mass. and we wanted to get a Florida fishing experience. We needed to change our reservation due to weather conditions and chose an afternoon trip. It was a sunny, warm and blustery day and tide coming in. Fishing under docks was the strategy and Capt. Rachel made sure we were as effective as possible with the casts and bait. We caught a couple (Red, Sheep Heads) lost a couple good size before landing them. Recognizing this isn’t the right season…  It was a great day over all and Capt. Rachel was out standing. Oh ya, Capt. Rachel filleted the fish and we enjoyed them the following night.
