Islamorada-Sarasota Shootout 1st Place in Trout Division

Hey Guys, gotta give some props to a buddy of mine from back home in NY who placed twice in last week's Islamorada-Sarasota Shootout. Frank and I fished in an 18 foot Dolphin Skiff because my brand new Mercury Verado was broke down again! (btw any ideas besides buying a Yamaha?)
We pre-fished Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday finding all the big trout and snook we needed to win. We also found lots of small tarpon, redfish, and unfortunately, some big-*** bull sharks. Even a pissed off gator who chewed up a floating aluminum can like it was a potato chip.
On Thursday and Friday, we were joined by my friend Patricia who absolutely loves to fish more than anyone! Maybe even me.
Frank and Patricia caught lots of snook, trout, tarpon, and redfish to take first and second place in the trout division up to 30". They caught snook up to 33" but got beat out by a couple of fish at 35".
