On a brighter side, I accidentally caught my first tarpon the other day night fishing for snapper in the canal. With the light tackle it put up quite a fight. Running half way down the canal when ever it wanted I must have spent 20 minutes bringing it in. After a few pictures he swam free no worse for the wear. The next day I ate barracuda for the first time as well. A baby really, maybe 18 inches long, it was some damn fine eating fish. I don't believe I'll be passing another up.
At the risk of sounding like a very boring guy here, I'll have to conclude this update as it is...just not a helluva lot going on. But I promise I'm enjoying the quiet time.
As soon as the water clears up I should be able to start posting more legit underwater photos. I'm actually kind of excited about that.
