We had a great day out on the water with Captain Blake. He worked hard to get us on the fish. We caught fish all day, and landed some really nice Hogfish!

First of all, we are supposed to meet between 7:30 and 8:00, Captain Blake shows up at 8:30. We have a group of 4, and end up with 2 trout…..that’s it. He did take us to a spot where we caught a couple of snook, but then told us that they are not in season so we couldn’t keep them.
