We made it back home a couple of hours ago and it is chilly and probably as windy as Fort Myers.

Thanks for the pictures you sent to me and I also enjoyed the fishing report. I really did have a blast Tuesday, despite the conditions. I received a tremendous education in salt water fishing with circle hooks. Some habits are hard to break. We use 6 or 8lb. mono and it breaks if you horse the fish but those Snook need to be shown who the boss is, and if I was shown a lesson it's "REEEEEEEEEEL, Pump, REEEEEEL"!

I can promise you that next spring we will return, and we will fish together again. I wouldn't miss it for the world. I did have the Snook broiled and it was pretty good, but Friday night I had the other side blackened and it was right out of this world.

Next stop -------- Redfish.

Thanks again for a great day.
