This kid had a fake octopus on fishing line and as folks would walk by and look at it he would snatch the line and most people freaked out LOL. Surprisingly nobody got upset with him and laughed along with us.

    You are probably right Ken, I was thinking the sign said 77 but I was probably wrong. My memory isn't what it used to be :grin

    We fished hard out of Destin for a number of years, until it got built up over towards 331. Had some great times there and caught some quality fish. Settled in at Mexico Beach and never went back. I've heard it's very crowded now.

    Spring Break and Summer are for sure the definition of insanity here.

    Off season is the only time I drive around out there myself. Fishing is still pretty good too if you get off the beaten path.
