Epic, epic trip. Second day at SKL was best fishing
day of my life. 12/15 on 120+lb tarpon in the AM. Exhausted
but feeling like heroes over lunch, we proceeded to go 3/18 in the
afternoon. Hooking almost 40 tarpon in 36 hours is a surreal
event and an experience that was not lost of both of us.
FAD trip was exceptional in a different way this time,
mostly due to James, Berto and David. They are such a special and
talented bunch. Watching them work the cockpit was amazing as they
shifted effortlessly from ballyhoo to live baits over and over again.
Drove through hoards of tuna on the way out. Blues were less
frequent and smaller, stripes & sharks were new to the FADs. Could
not keep the mahi off our baits which (although not the goal) kept the action
constant for our three days.
Regardless, boat, food, crew and experience were nothing
less than expected. Accomodations, transfer and planes were all on time,
easy and comfortable. I trust my fishing experiences to no one else in
