Just did another Capt Yuri Dry Tortugas trip!

Six of us did the DT fishing trip with Capt Yuri last weekend. A couple of SE Section guys went along too. Got a few more guys from this Section going back out there with me in 3 more weeks....... Shoeless and Bambam78. They both went on their first DT trips last summer but not together. This time we'll have both buddies and a few special newbies going as well!

It was a bit slow at first but we ended up just Slamming the big Muttons! Came close to our Limit on American Red Snapper too! We all brought home about 15 bags of fish which is enough for more than 50 fish dinners!

Shoving off again just three weeks from tomorrow!

    I've done 14 of these trips and I set another new Record in that I caught 3 Muttons over 10 pounds! A pair of 11 pounders and a nice 12 pounder!

    It was also the first trip with a Tiger Shark caught and also the first time that we had porpoises show up in the underwater night lights! It was a Wild Kingdom Trip for sure!

    Awesome 
    People use statistics the way a drunk uses a street light, for support rather than illumination.
