Went Fishing…

WHAT AN AWESOME TRIP!  Check it out. Left Thursday at 8:15am.  Got to Pensacola, Fl at 9:30pm.  Ate some dinner and hit the hay.  Got up EARLY to be on the boat by 6am.  Fished all day and got off the boat around 5:30pm.  Our first mate had the fish all cut up for us in an hour and off to the local eatery to have our fresh catch prepared for us.  After and incredible dinner, we got back into our vehicles and got on the road home at 9:30pm on Friday.  Got home at 10:30am on Saturday.  Whew…

Yes, it was incredible.  We had a great time.  We caught many fish.  The weather was perfect.  The sea was cooperative (only about four foot swells).  I did have the honor of catching the biggest fish of the trip.  After a hard five minute or so fight, the 32 inch, almost 20 pound amberjack gave in.  We caught our limit on red snapper.  We caught a bunch of white snapper as well.  We each brought home about nine pounds of fish.  Sweet!!  Below is a pic of my catch and a link to many other pics!
