We Want Our Lives Back
As we know all too well the life we know is under-siege.
 The Coronavirus cases in Florida has been confirmed at over 5,000 cases and counting. With 777,000+ global cases the threat is worldwide. The best scientist on the planet are working 24/7 to find a solution.
 Drugs such as Remdesivir, Abbvie, and Moderna may prove to be the answer. Only time will tell. How much time is anyone's guess.
 We want our lives back. For many 'our lives' are centered around fishing. Fishing is more than a hobby; it's a way of life.
My 'way of life' began many years ago fishing the miles of grass flats along the Courtney Campbell Causeway, and later the Tampa Tarpon Tournament.

In the early sixties I found Bunces Pass. The trout, mackerel, flounder, and pompano fishing was outstanding:

Salty Sol and Captain Wilson Hubbard kept us up to date:

Today Captain Dylan Hubbard, Captain Wilson's grandson,
keeps us up to date with his Live Stream Show every Sunday evening at 8:30 P.M.
Per Captain Dylan, the John's Pass Bridge & Jetty areas are open and loaded with fish just waiting to b caught:

Let's join Captain Hubbard, and his faithful companion, Capt. Sig, in saying a little prayer that the siege is short lived:

As we all know the weather this year has left lot to be desired. As the weather improves, so does the fishing.
Florida Fishing in April can be absolutely fantastic.
Let's take a look at yester-year:

Due to Cornavirus most marinas are closed and head-charter boats remain at the dock. That doe's not mean fishing must stop.
Fish famous John's Pass Bridge Area & Jetty remain open with fish just waiting to be caught.
