Went fishing on Thursday, November 24, 2016

The boat and equipment were all in good shape.  The morning started off slow trolling and casting, but then we went out a bit further to bottom fish and between the 3 of us we caught more than 14 snapper.  I was hopeful we would have caught a little more variety of fish, but what we did catch made for an awesome fish fry for family and friends that evening!
