gator fishing

was suppose to fish a tourney tomorrow morning but we decided not to and to just go fish out at south chain for fun. thats donald hig behind me in the pic, vince is the shadow on my shirt taking the picture. we caught several fish. vince lost a 7 pounder next to the boat but landed this beauty in the picture where hes looking oh so sexy without his shirt on. the best thing i caught was the gator. he put up a great fight but in the end he was no match for my 65 lb braid. its funny, because while we were out in cali the number one question about florida was "what about all the gators" and my first fishing trip out...well you see the picture. dont worry, the gator is alive and well waiting to grow up and eat a tourist from california.

first steelhead

so maybe its not the biggest fish in the world or the the best photo or the best smile but im proud of the fish. i spent two days trying to catch it. steelhead are supposedly one of the hardest trout to catch. i had hooked one the day before and everyone told me i was lucky just to of hooked one so catching one made the trip. i also hooked a salmon today that ran me about halfway into my backing before pulling the hook. well tomorrow its back to ol FLA (my true love). it will be nice to be back home... just wish we had trout!

sea trout on the rocks

we came over to indian rocks beach to spend a few days with my parents. i brought the boat over and dad and i decided to try out the fishing back in the intercoastal waterway across the street from their place. didnt take us long to find the trout. we caught a red fish, broke off a few snook (fishing without leaders will do that to you) and caught a bunch of trout in about an hour. we kept a limit of trout for a fish fry tomorrow night. ive been wondering if there was any good fishing over here and now i know. guess i wont leave the boat at home any more.
