The ban starts

Back to a new year of making dreams come true in the Florida Keys and the start of the long four month grouper ban. It has made a difference but to a foodie like me it still sucks. I will have to wait till the 1 st May to enjoy the creamy white flakes of grouper. But no problem in the Keys we have a massive larder out there and the spanish mackerel smoked the other day were amazing. Weather a bit cool for us but fishing still good a boat PB the other day a 21 lb redfish for Tim and he made sure with an other 20 lb one as well. Alan got to skip buy catching my favorite grouper the gag and yes it had to go back.

We also had our 108 species and I have no idea what it is but the photo has been sent off to the people who know so will keep you all informed. Perfect day today for sails so with a live full of frisky blue runners we are off at first light with fingers crossed. Photos of red fish will have to wait not on digetal so will scan hard prints when they come out.
