Fishing today was like sex, we started off hard and doing well, petered out, then strong finish!

Fishing today was like sex, we started off hard and doing well, then petered out, followed by a very strong finish!

It was off at 7 with Joe, a good friend from Atlanta to meet the bait boat.  First stop and Joe’s first cast and he lands a Snooklet, about four casts later he lands another Snooklet.  We fished from the Manatee Pocket to the Beach and then all the way up to the North Fork of the St. Lucie River.  Joe is a very experienced Offshore Fisherman but I think I changed his mind about inshore fishing as he landed 11 Snook, including a slot at 31 inches that became dinner.  He has never eaten Snook before and it might be one of his favorite fish now which was grilled with creole seasoning.  He also landed a big Spanish Mackerel, Barracuda and a few Jacks.  I didn’t contribute much today, only landing 5 Snooklets and a few Jacks. 

Had a great day with Joe and the plan is to fish together again on Friday.
