    Post move fishing

    The move down to Florida went well and things are sttling in at the new job. I have been sneaking out to fish when possible and after a few trips getting to know the fish they have finally started to warm up to me. Being centrally located is nice as I have fairly decent drives to both coasts. About an hour and 20 the gulf and roughly 2 hours depending on location to the atlantic. The gulf fish still don't like me much but their eastern brethren have been more than inviting. Anyways here are some pics from my first 45 days as a resident!

    First sea trout


    First redfish


    First day on the push pole


    First permit sighted


    First tailing redfish in hand



    Lots of "firsts" in those 45 days! Here are a few more fish






    I don't think I"m leaving this state anytime soon!

    It's not all me! I have the help of a fiance who doesn't mind holding the boat in position and a few friendly locals

    Very nice. I did the same thing you did about 8-9 years ago and have absolutely intentions of ever leaving. I miss the food, but that's about it.
