    Great catching!
  5. Had a good couple trips out of Jupiter this past week. On Wednesday I went out on a solo bait scouting trip and to throw some jigs around a bridge or 2. Bait was scarce so I decided I would throw some jigs under a bridge for a while. On my 6th or 7th cast I had a good thump and it was game on. After a good fight and several trips around the Hewes I was able to get this 39"er on the deck. My biggest snook on the Hewes so far! Came on a white / blue First Light Jig Friday evening towards sunset my buddy and I put in an hour before sunset in hopes of finding some bait. No luck! Off to the bridge I caught the previous snook. Fishing was very slow but we were able to net a dozen mullet that came through just after sunset. Decided to head a bit closer to the inlet and work a bridge with our newly accuired mullet. At 10:30 (90 minutes before Snook season closed) my buddy boats a nice 29" snook and not long after I get destroyed right off a bridge pylon. After another good fight I was able to land my second 39" snook in as many days.
  6. Picked up one of the Ryobi pressure sprayers last week. Made for a quick clean up after a long day of fishing. The low center of gravity on the unit makes it really handy. Looks like the soap cannon is next on my Amazon list........

    FMT Lowrance vs Simrad

    I was back and forth on both the Simrad vs Lowrance as well as the 12" display vs the 9" display. I ultimatley ended up going with the 9" Simrad and I am super happy with the decision. I was able to find a retailer to give me 10% off MSRP and then there was a $400 rebate at the time which got me down to the "hundreds" more for the knob. Certainly makes it more palatable. When I made my first trip to the Keys last month it was blowing 20-25 the whole time, it was super choppy and it was my first time in Florida Bay. Using the knob to zoom in when approaching cuts was easy and natural. I was able to do so with quick glances and confidence while getting bounced around. I feel for that particular instance it is certainly worth the $$$. Now if its glass flat using the +\- probably isn't a big deal. I am super impressed with the FMT chip, it allowed me to run around the Keys like I have been doing it for years. I had zero stress about where I was going which is worth its weight in gold. Now I just need to find a copy of The Little Back Book of Fishing Spots : )

    Keys Trip / Islamorado Question

    That wind didn’t set down all week! Thats a heck of a long run with that breeze. Did you catch anything?

    Keys Trip / Islamorado Question

    The wind was relentless are all 3 days we were there. Made fishing very difficult to say the least! We did have a blast though and was able to catch a big tarpon the the Channel 2 bridge. I am guessing in the low 100's range. By far the biggest tarpon on the boat. It appears the tarpon are showing up in big numbers there. Kon Tiki was a fantastic place to stay. Nice ramp on site, clean and cold rooms and friendly staff. Couldn't get into Chef Michaels on Sunday so we ate at Ziggie & Mad Dogs which was great. Monday night was Chef Michaels and as usual, it didn't disappoint. Looking forward to getting back soon with less windy conditions. so we can make a trip to the north.

    My favorite place there! Usually do the Conch chowder and a whole fried hog fish. Delicious
