Sea to Table


Started the day around 8 am at Punta Rassa between Ft Meyers and Sanibel.  







Maxed out the Mangrove Snapper in a couple of hrs.  Missed several.  Learning to fish a little different style.  

Moved to a second spot to target a bigger fish.  Saw this guy enjoying a snack.  Then the rain came and ran us further up the river…


Right into a school of hungry snook.  Out of season, but a lot of fun to catch. 




All the snook were 28-30”.  Good times. 

The table part will come tomorrow as we’re off to the crab races tonight.

    You weren't only fishing, you were catching. That's a bonus good day.

    Maybe the snook got the best of him.

    What a great day - I’m an insomniac, so I’m more envious of the sleep than the fish though.

    Too bad you had to release the snook.  Take the skin off if you ever do get to cook them.

    Nice. Looks like a great time, even before anything was cooked. 

    And I’m ever so grateful to not have to see your nipples. Again.

    For the record, Brent asked to see them.  

    I do agree with you however.

    Ok.  Cooked the fish. 
    Lightly breaded. Served with sautéed mushrooms and a coconut, pineapple and lime rice.  Rice cooked in chicken broth.

    Hard to beat fresh caught snapper.  It was really good.  I riffed the rice off of @tarheelmatt from BB.  It was darn good by itself.

    There is nothing better than fresh fish.  Better than Waygu anything.  Great outing brother.
