Some Florida Fishing
December 16, 2013
Dave and I love to fish. After all, we run a fly-in fishing business! The only problem is that by the time we have time to go fishing, our lakes are frozen over. Needless to say, we need to find our fix in other locations. Dave and I have been going to Florida for over 15 years now but have never really tried deep sea fishing until two years ago. A good friend of ours recommended we take an excursion with Captain Joe Miller of Fish Galore Offshore in Venice, Florida. We decided to give it a shot and have been absolutely thrilled! We have been going with him for the last two years with great success. If you are ever in the Venice area and looking for an ocean adventure, you should contact Captain Joe. We guarantee you will have a wonderful time.
On this trip, we were with our good friends Jeff & Dawn from Columbia City, Indiana, as well as Dave’s business partner in the hanger, Gene. We all had a wonderful time out on the Gulf. We caught Red Grouper, Gag Grouper, Red Snapper, and Trigger Fish. But the most exciting was when Dawn released a 10-foot Nurse Shark, and then only 30 minutes later, Gene released a hefty Bull Shark!
The Amber Jacks were also great fun. They always put up a good fight. With the help of Dave, I was able to reel in a 30+ pounder. But Dave was the real champ when he landed an impressive 50 pounder!
Our Florida fishing trip was a great escape. After the busy fly-in season, it’s nice to relax and enjoy our favorite sport. After all is said and done though, we are ready to get back to work.
Escape to the Wilderness,
