Well, Donna and I leave next Thursday for Florida.
We are taking 3 days to drive down.
A nice easy ride.
Then 2 weeks in Englewood on the Gulf coast.
Rented a condo on the beach pretty reasonable.
Then 3 weeks to drive back home.

Will start our house hunting while down there.
Not really ready to buy yet as we aren't planning to move there for 2 more years.
But might as well start looking.
We know what we want and where we want to be.

Just bought my one year saltwater non-resident fishing license.
I will surf fish pretty much every day while down there.
We are also going on a head boat at least once, however you don't need a fishing license for that.
My brother lives down there and he has a lot of friends with boats that fish so I'm sure I'll go out with a couple/few of them.
Also, we are going to rent a pontoon boat at least for one day - so I'll fish off that a bit.

Zoom!

Heading out in a few minutes to rent a pontoon boat for the day.  I’m taking a couple fishing poles with.  We packed some sandwiches and lots of water bottles.  No beer as they are pretty strict about boating and alcohol.  It’s already 78.
Last night a turtle came ashore and laid eggs on the beach.  We can see the tracks in the sand from our balcony.  Donna took pictures of the tracks.  Kinda cool but I wish I’d seen the turtle.  By the size of the tracks I estimate it was at least 2 foot in diameter at least.

The only picture.




I caught maybe 2 dozen.
(Stopped counting after 12)

Donna, not so good.
She was quick out of the gate, quickly getting 3 before I even got a bite.

Everything was small.
8-14”
I had 3 keepers I gave away.

Lots of sun and heat.
Great time.

Got 6 or 7 sail cats off the docks today using squid.  Lots of fun.
Also a small lane snapper and few tiny trash fish
Lane snapper are great to eat but this guy was like only 10”.
Going out in a pontoon again tomorrow.
I’ll take a rod and the rest of the squid.
Maybe I’ll ask Donna to snap a few pix for you guys.
Only got to 84 today
Cold!!’
