I would put the flat fish and convict/sheapshead in front of salmon. But I’m highly biased.


My already completed 'Lil Bit'. A Martens Goosen V12 set up to sail me to the fishing holes.
Currently working on making a Helms 24 our coastal cruiser.

My dear friend from Gig Harbor WA flew in Saturday and Monday we headed down to the Rod and Gun Club in Everglades City for three nights. The fishing was slow but we caught enough for dinner 2 nights. Clara was once again Belle of the Ball, turning heads with even the guides. Got into some VERY SKINNY water, including twice when I had to get out and walk her over some shoals. Heading home tomorrow and may go out in the bay Friday.

Yesterday was a magical day on Tampa Bay!!

We also filled the tank before going, and three days of running the rivers and shore down south used 15.5 gallons of gas!

Stop it. Get back to work. For AUKUS to work, someone has to. :wink:
