Fort Pierce 9/29
This past weekend, I had a good friend and his family came down to visit for a few days, on their way to Miami. I promised I would take them out fishing, and the weather cooperated enough to let us go out on the intracoastal. We started out at the mouth of the Fort Pierce Inlet at one of the day markers, with minimal luck. We caught one undersized Mutton Snapper and a Blue Fish. Since the bite was slow, I decided to move to another spot. Our second spot was much more productive. We landed 16 legal Lane Snapper, a few decent Jack Crevalles. After we ran out of bait, I decided to take my friends to Gilligan’s Island. They seemed to really enjoying see our beautiful water ways. I was very grateful that we caught some snapper as I promised my friend and his family fresh fish tacos. I put cut the fish up into chunks and soaked them in avocado oil with some seasonings. After the fish marinated for a few hours I grilled them up. My friend’s wife made some coleslaw for the tacos and I made a jalapeno key lime sauce. The spicy sauce with the creamy coleslaw was a great combination. The fish tacos were a big hit. All in all it was a great weekend visiting with friends. Good times and good food. I hope you all had a good weekend on the water also. Take care my friends and tight lines.
