Gone Fishin'

Today we went out on a fishing boat for a morning of reef fishing. We had a great time. Our friends Nan and Ron came along to show us the ropes. 
Left to Right, Rob, Nan and Ron. Just look at those happy faces!
We were on the Marathon Lady and out of the harbor at 8:30 am sharp. There were about 30 people fishing with us today. We motored out to the reef and the fishing began. Rob and I caught grunts.

Blue Striped Grunt
We ended up with 18 of them but some were caught by Nan and added to our kitty.

I caught a Yellow Fin Snapper but it was too little and had to go back and grow more. What a bummer it was to see him swim away.
The whole boat's catch.
Nan and Ron took home some great larger fish and Ron filleted our fish along with theirs. Thanks Ron! We had some pretty tasty fish for dinner this evening. 

There were dozens of pelicans waiting for the fish cleaning. They get the scraps daily. 

This guy was trying to get the advantage. It didn't work.

We are hoping to go out again before we leave the keys on the 1st of December.
