Took the rugrats down for a salt soak this Springbreak 
Wind was a challenge early in the week, spent some time looking for protected pockets to fish.  Lee side of mangroves at honeymoon island was a good place to get skunked.  At least i didnt bleed.

Gulf side of Ft. Desoto, was hoping for a stray spanish mack here, paddled out to old Loran tower, nothing doing. Kids were ready to trade beach for grassflats, so we went inside.
Daughter got the skunk off 1st, so my day was made. Good time to get attacked by dink trout.
This one mustve fought a dolphin, healed up nice
Finished up with a TampaBaytarpon

After hitting both ends of county, decided to try a dock or two on homecreek.  Left kids and went off for stupidpeopletricks...
Well be safe here...
Picked up this hooligan under a light, and a rat red that was slightly larger than the plug i was throwing.
Ive had worse trips.

The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.
