Fishing with Captain Garett Hubbard

I am a proud Florida native who has been fishing and hunting in the Sunshine State ever since the late forties.
I fished from my own boat when we did this on a very regular basis:
I have hunted all over this big, beautiful, wonderful country of ours. My den looks like a zoo:
In my early years I keep hearing about this almost mystical place know as the Florida Middle Grounds. Unfortunately the Grounds was far beyond my reach. In 1976 I decided to try an overnight serious fishing trip with Hubbard's Marina to the Grounds. The fishing was spectacular; I was hooked. I sold my boat and began fishing with Hubbard's. I have been doing so ever since.
Unfortunately, due to age and failing health, I must give up what has been part of my life for so many years. But I still am passionate about sharing Our Florida with fellow sportsmen/women. But how?

Some how, some way, we will survive:
First up... Can Will once again hit the gold as he attempts:
Our first-mate receives a standing ovation as he hits the GOLD!
As the Florida Fisherman ll crosses under John's Pass Bridge the weather is:
Talk about Florida Sunshine, Will is getting a sun-tan, end of November, inside the cabin:
1:00 A. M. Saturday morning. Captain Garett has taken us deep into the very heart of the Florida Middle Grounds.
A 'well-tanned' Will leads the...
Thanks Captain; thanks Will... This is looking fantastic:
Talk about a Mangrove Snapper to be proud of.
Talk about being proud. Check out these Gags:
The Florida's huge #1 fish box is filling fast, and we have just begun:
They are getting BIGGER!
Saturday morning. Will the bite continue?
It's looking good:
This is turning into:
We do not see too many Muttons in our waters:
Late Saturday evening, we are fished-out tired.
Look at that huge smile on Captain Garett's face:
Let's go home.
Once again Will 'Leads the charge'!
Sunday morning, after a good, restful, night's sleep we are:
Back at the dock:
We are welcomed back by the lovely ladies of Hubbard's Marina:
