soul searcher I'm goin to cheat a little bit some of these are from work.

J caught this one on a hand line

As far as sharks go I really try to avoid them. Unless there are Makos around. They are one heck of pull but very dangerous around the boat.
remember a shark has no skeleton they can bite their own tail.
And in general I don't want to eat anything that urinates through its skin.
Makos are one of the exceptions they have a separate urinary track.

Spanish Mackeral

Caught these sailing the gulf from Tampa to Ft. Meyers. I hadn't brought any gear with me, but a previous owner had left 4 or 5 lures at the bottom of a compartment. I tied em to some kinda line and threw em over. I got these two pretty quick but then I started pulling only remnants of hooked fish. Then 4 or 5 times in a row hard hits with only empty line coming back aboard. Never thought about jumping in to find out what was eating my catches and lures! It was fun and I look forward to much more of it in the future.

By the time you buy the gear and poles you could have bought enough fish to make the voyage without the gear (J/K)

sailingdog Don't wear shiny jewelry when diving with barracudas around.

TrueBlue Nice pics tj.

Those Cudas can get nasty, been up close and personal with many during dive charters - but fortunately no attacks yet. Here are some shots from our last trip to the Keys . . .
