Monday night we went tarpon fishing at Government Cut. We caught 3 tarpon and had another 8 bites on live crabs. Andrew, Bob and Tom had a great time.

Tuesday we cashed in on Miami fishing. Red snapper season is closed in Federal waters, but they are legal in state waters. We caught 3 snapper from 15 to 17 pounds in 3 drops. We added a gray grouper, a big kingfish and a bonito before the group of Louise, Alex and Curtis ran out of gas from all night parties and a long drive from the west coast.

Tuesday evening we fished with Children Battling Cancer young lady Vitoria and her dad Oscar. They caught and released 3 nice snook and a barracuda.

Wednesday it was off to catch a swordfish with John from London England. We caught, tagged and released a 55 inch swordfish one drop and caught and harvested a 70 inch swordfish the next drop. All this after no bites from 8 AM to 1PM.
