Nature killed the bite. Weather report changed to northwest wind and cold front moving in on Sat. But we're committed and planned to stay at the rail til the wind and seas picked up. 3 kings and a few slob muttons,quite a few grouper that were returned to the sea,some porgies-but no monsters like Thelma's previous catch,and quite a few yellow tail. But sad to report,only 3 tubs. Chad said it best,"triangle of death." Chad,Lyndan,and Josh did an awesome job getting everyone untangled and making sure we had a good time despite disappointing cold wind and rough seas. Greg and Matt put us on the fish until high seas demanded safety be the priorty. When Jarbas said he wanted to go home,I knew this trip was done. I will never forget when he hooked a fish at the bow and had to run to stern. "Run Jarbas run" was yelled and we learned all he got was a workout. Fish got away. Thank you Cameron for saying hello and that you recognized us from previous trip. Dan,cannot thank you enough for the king filet you donated so I could make dip for Heidi aka scamp(grouper)aka J-Lo(YC mates). She and Colleen aka Snookums really enjoyed it!!
Sloppy Joes had a killer band Sun. evening and we enjoyed an interesting and fun afternoon to evening in Key West. So glad Greg joined us for a while and gave us a ride back to our hotel!
Snookums had a good 1st YC trip because she caught a slob mutton! Shared it with us at Calypso's in Key Largo. Sorano cream sauce made that mutton melt in your mouth. YUM!!!
This was Heidi and Colleen's 1st YC trip. In our travels and talks,we became a new team...."Hell on Reels"....poss. Nov. trip to plan!!
