    The snapper, and porgy, bite is strong. Never over-look porgies, they are fun to catch and excellent eating:




    No matter how hard we try, we simply cannot get away from the 'endangered' American red snapper, they are everywhere:


    Rudder fish are there for the taking, as many as we want. Omar & Travis show us how it's done:

    Hold on! Larry, that's no rudder fish:



    The gags are just as plentiful as the red snapper. Is it June yet?



    Our Captain, Captain Garett Hubbard, is all excited about red grouper, we are not even targeting them, yet!
    And, the best part, we can actually keep them.

    Mr. Michael Dickinson, a Florida 'regular,' fishing spot # 60, is one of the best:

    The late night, early morning, catch is looking good, very good:

    And, speaking of good, Nothing beats early morning, hot off the grill, blueberry pancakes. Only the freshest, most flavorful, blueberries are good enough for Tammy's guest. Add Hickory Smoked bacon and this is much more than breakfast, it's an early morning feast!

    It's early Saturday morning and already approaching 80 degrees, let's ice down our catch:

    Joe and Larry show us how it's done:

    Joe is catching huge snapper one after another. How?
    Joe share his secret:


    Tammy is so proud of Joe:

    And, speaking of proud, here comes Tammy. Jersey Girl, we are hungry, not just hungry, but fish catching hungry. Not for long! This is not just another burger, this is a proud, 'Jersey Girl' burger. The best, most flavorful beef, surrounded by the freshest tomatoes, the most crispy Romaine lettuce, real American cheese on a very special bun, and restaurant grade potato salad,  makes this a feast to remember. Hungry? You will be:

    Even the squadron is joining us for lunch:

    Mr. Larry Miller continues the fight.

    Professional mate, Jon, is so proud of us. Be sure to 'catch' Jon's excellent recap of our trip 10:52 minutes into the video.

    Another 'regular,' Mr. Phillip Salvia, fishing out of spot # 3,
    is one of the best:

    Our Northern friends add so much to these trips. They are always more than welcome. Mr. Robert Sellers, Carmel, Indiana, traveled 1,034 miles to fish spot # 10 from the deck of the Florida Fisherman ll. Mr. Sellers represents the Hoosier state very well. Our own Tammy gaffed Robert's prized blackfin. Catch all the action 24 seconds into the video at that end of this report:



    Tuna number two for Robert. Both were caught trolling in between stops:

    Carmel, Indiana, is a 'little' different from Madeira Beach, Florida:

    Far from Indiana, Florida native, Mr. John Martin, the Florida Fisherman ll fishing coach, not only tells us how, but shows us how to become a better fisherman. Want to learn more. John is always more than willing to share his vast knowledge.
