Whyb We Like Florida So Much

Recommended Posts

B)    Why we like Florida so much.

 
Ever stop to think 'Why we like Florida so much?'
Let's just say our Northern neighbors have it a little colder than we do:

Our Winter sports are a little different:

Even our fishing is a little different:

Late November on the Florida Fisherman ll:
150 mangrove snapper, 250 deep water vermilion snapper, and 10 huge porgies, along with:
30 scamp grouper of all sizes:

Many 'endangered' AJ''s. All were released:

Same with the recreationally 'over-fished' red grouper. Ten caught, vented, and released to fight again:

Now that's a big grouper. The Florida, for study purposes, has a special permit to bring goliath grouper on board. Statistics are taken, the mighty fish is vented, and returned to his rocky home:

The reasons 'we like Florida so much' is pretty obvious:

Headed to the snapper banks this weekend, & then to the woods for some Florida wild boar hunting.  Be sure to follow the reports, or, better yet; join us.
