Trip Info

Summary

My kids came down from Long Island in New York so of course I had to take them out to show them our beautiful waters here and abundant fishing.  What a day we had!  Among our favorite catches were King Mackerel, huge Bonito trolling off the top, Red Snapper, Trigger Fish, but the best of all was a 52 inch Cobia that ended up on our grill that night.
